Kevin Wilkinson, Senior Vice President of Human Resources at international IT services company, Atos, outlines why bringing apprentices on to the workforce is essential to business growth.

“At Atos we are committed to developing people, providing them with challenging and rewarding careers. Apprenticeship schemes are now a key part of our strategy for recruiting future talent into our business. In a time of such high youth unemployment it is great to be able to give real opportunities to young people and we are consistently finding that our apprentices are bringing a lot of energy, commitment and ideas to the business areas they work in.”
