    Aimee Densmore, Program Manager/Apprenticeship Coordinator at Parkland College, speaking on apprenticeship programs.

    Aimee Densmore has served students at Parkland College since 2002, devoting the last six years to recruiting and advising students in applied technology programs. Her role has recently evolved to developing work-based learning programs in partnership with area employers to expand their talent pools and increase employee retention. Aimee earned a bachelor degree from Eastern Illinois University in 2006 and engages in continuing education in workplace communications and leadership. Aimee serves as Vice President of Parkland’s Professional Support Staff Union and assists the college by serving as an EEO representative as often as her work schedule allows.

    Work-based learning is a game-changer for employee recruiting and retention. Expand your talent pool by hiring less experienced individuals and pairing them with a mentor plus related training. Mentoring naturally results in the transfer of institutional knowledge from seasoned staff members to newer hires. Providing an opportunity for under-skilled individuals to advance establishes loyalty and engagement thus increasing retention. Grant-funding for training and tax incentives to offset the employer’s expenses are the icing on the cake.
