Why should you employ your next apprentice or trainee through WPC Group?
Now more than ever, employers need to focus on controlling costs, managing skills and saving time. WPC Group offers a 'one stop shop' integrated workforce solution.
Control your costs
WPC receives support from both the State and Commonwealth Government, including grants and exemptions from things like payroll tax that you cannot receive directly.
There are many hidden ‘on costs’ when recruiting and employing directly that can add up to another 30% on top of a base pay rate. WPC build all these factors into a flexible, fuss free workforce solution.
Manage your risk
Our workforce solution allows you to focus on managing your business. WPC understand that your staffing levels may change from time to time. Should you not require the apprentice or trainee or things simply don’t work out, you can hand them back with the knowledge that WPC will endeavor to find them another placement.
WPC also manage workcover and any claims that may arise.
Save your time
Some managers spend 80% of their time, managing 20% of their people. Think about the time and money your company spends each year on recruitment, administration and payroll, let alone keeping up to date with complex awards and legislation. WPC can pass on efficiencies through economies of scale as well as save you money, as well as your time.
Why hire an apprentice or trainee?
Australia is facing a critical shortage of skilled people. Don’t get caught out. WPC Group is already working in partnership with more than 250 companies and government agencies to develop people who can meet future skills needs.
WPC Group employs apprentices and trainees to meet your skills needs. We then place them in your business. We will mentor them through their apprenticeship training and handle payroll, workcover, superannuation and other administrative requirements. You gain the beneﬁt of having an apprentice or trainee and contribute to building the future skills needs of your business and industry. WPC Group monitors and manages them for the full length of their training and provides regular training progress reports.
