3 Reasons Why the TASP May Benefit You
1. Solution for Tech Talent Shortage
The IT job market has more tech positions available than college graduates available to fill them. In 2020 alone, 200k new tech jobs were created.
We will help you source and train top quality candidates and ensure that they have the most in-demand IT skills to fit your organization’s needs.
2. Combat Low Retention
Traditional recruiting can be more challenging and may result in about a 32% or lower retention rate for your tech talent.
QuickStart’s Technology Apprentice Scholar Program is hands-on, we’ll assist your business with onboarding and mentoring to help you achieve an apprentice retention rate close to 90%.
3. Lower Cost, Higher ROI
Traditional recruiting is high cost, averaging $5k to find and hire talent, and an estimated $4k in onboarding costs, all while the new employee takes about 3 months to be fully productive in their role.
Our complete program takes care of the sourcing, training, certification, mentoring, and onboarding at a lower cost per employee than a traditional process, and ensures they are the best talent for you.
