The South Baldwin Chamber of Commerce
recognizes that finding and retaining the right talent is tough. As part of our Gateway Initiative
, we have been researching ways to better prepare our workforce to meet the employment needs of the hospitality industry. We believe that apprenticeships offer one solution with great potential.
We have invited staff members from the national offices of the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA)
, National Restaurant Association (NRAEF)
, and the American Culinary Federation (ACF)
to introduce three newly created apprenticeship programs for Restaurant, Lodging Managers (including vacation rental) and Chefs. Supported by the US Department of Labor, apprenticeships are a powerful solution that equip workers with the skills needed to drive the success of your business. If you face challenges in attracting and retaining the skilled workers you need, the apprenticeship program can be your answer.
What is apprenticeship? Apprenticeship is a training model that combines on-the-job learning with related classroom instruction to increase skill level and economic mobility. Apprenticeships are proven to reduce turnover costs, increase productivity, result in higher job satisfaction and create a more skilled and competitive workforce. The intent with the programs is to help grow the ?bench strength? of each industry by cultivating and developing new supervisors into management positions.
Join us, Wednesday, October 3rd for this free session to learn about the innovative new apprenticeship program that is yielding 95% retention rates for restaurants & hotels nationwide from independent operators to national chains and management companies.
