Work-from-home internship programs have remained a trial and tested tactic to increase the recruitment and retention of early career talent. According to LinkedIn Learning Report, 2021 stated that 94% of surveyed employees would stay longer if their company invested in their learning. Including online internship programs as part of your employee retention strategy could help develop talent and build stable professional relationships.
Work-from-home internships are also a trial period to examine an applicant in action beyond how they presented themselves in an interview. Employers should foster interns to consider whether the company is a good fit. Here again, employee retention applies a proactive approach and transparency in goals and values.
