(Paid) interns mean talent, value and profit


Paid internships are not just for the FTSE 100. SMEs who offer paid roles for young people can attract greater talent, add value and ultimately boost business.

Daniel Todaro, managing director of Gekko argues: “Unpaid interns may be a method of balancing the books right now, but how about in ten or twelve months’s time when the business has little continuity, low morale, employees fearing for their jobs, and zero stability. The old adage of spending money to make money could not be truer, and that investment has to be in people first.”
