Union construction is facing an unprecedented set of challenges:
With the baby boomer generation retiring, many unions face the challenge of replacing half of their talent base within the next five years.
As parents and high schools emphasize the college track, it’s harder to attract top candidates to the trades.
Generation Y has grown up in a world of technology, and has new and different ideas about work and careers.
As a result, apprenticeship programs are under incredible pressure to find and train a new generation to replace its most seasoned veterans. A major stumbling block is that many apprenticeship programs use selection processes that don’t identify the candidates who will be most successful. Too many programs use off-the-shelf tests that only look at a few basic skills, and interviews that beat around the bush and don’t get at the “real” questions that distinguish the high performers from the big pretenders.
Apprentice Performance Solutions combines decades of union construction experience with the talent of top experts in the science of hiring to offer a new selection solution with the power you need. The APS Success Profile System looks at a broad range of qualities needed for apprentices to succeed, and builds those into a custom-designed selection process that is solid, cost-effective, and easy to use.
