what is the
The EBP is a continuous support service, extended to our student graduates with qualification obtained from an Australian institution. The programme is also suitable for those intending to gain further experience in the Australian workplace.
The EBP takes our candidates through 6 stages, from developing an employer-worthy profile, to learning basic work tools, enhancing work values and solutioning, and managing work expectations.
BENEFITS TO THE
Whilst the objective is to prepare the candidate to be ‘work-ready’, the employer benefits from this 'non-obligatory to hire after' relationship.
With less pressure, the intern can quickly assimilate, contribute and be productive without involving too much time and cost during the transition for the employer. Therefore, being a host company can be a rewarding experience.
Why would the organisation be interested in the role of a Host Employer?
Allow the employer to ‘test-drive’ the talent so that there is a ‘safe period’ for both parties to progress in the relationship rather than place pressure on that structure instead.
Increase employee satisfaction and retention rate as interns would typically have a grace period to mature into a required role in the organisation.
Enhance creativity with the introduction of fresh ideas and perspectives. Interns are typically eager to 'shine', but with the lack of work experience, they compel to contribute new ideas.
Early Exposure for Adaptability
Allowing graduates the earliest opportunity to work towards meeting work standards so that the industry can benefit as a whole. This is important for the economy as a whole.
