How interns and part-timers contribute to your company’s productivity.
Internship and part timing programs at companies are a two-way street for the growth of both interns and the company. Many wrongly think that it’s solely an opportunity for the intern, when in reality it’s a true give and take relation that is beneficial to both parties. While companies give the interns hands on experience of real work settings, the company also benefits from obtaining fresh perspective and an eager to impress the employee.
Internship programs give companies the opportunity to get a constant flow of young and fresh minds that are mostly enthusiastic learners. This also gives companies almost like a trial period to test out the best prospective employee before deciding on one. It opens doors for the companies to be in touch with different universities and other local communities. Company officials can thoroughly test and build communication with interns through mentorship even before they join the company as an employee. This helps the company in the long term where team building plays a major role for the smooth working of all departments.
Providing part-time and internship opportunities at your company can build a favorable image where you are viewed as a business entity that cares about the youth of not only the community but society as a whole. Choosing your interns and part-timers from different educational institutes also gives you an occasion to build ties with them which can in future be of use to you by letting you acquire the best talents from all institutes around you. Not only does this help the company, it also helps with the company’s brand awareness as every student interning or part timing at your company can be a spokesperson or ambassador for you at their respective educational institutes.
Internship programs are also a great way to mold young and fresh minds according to organization’s own culture and qualities which can be difficult to instil in employees that join your company after being at another. Unlike employees with previous experience, interns and part-timers are much more accommodating and ready to blend in. So, while companies offer interns priceless experience the students also offer their enthusiasm to learn, their fresh perspective on issues and an outlook influenced by the most modern trends.
