  8. Return on Investment research Apprenticeships will boost the Hertfordshire economy to the tune of £386 million within six years, if every business hires just one local apprentice, according to ‘Return on Investment’ (ROI) research which allows individual firms to calculate the potential financial returns gained from investing in apprentices……. The easy-to-use online calculator is available free at www.apprenticeships.org.uk and takes into consideration factors such as salaries and anticipated training costs, when forecasting the impact an apprentice can make to a company’s bottom line. In 2007, a series of in-depth studies with large, national employers was undertaken to establish hard, measurable evidence of the bottom line business benefits of Apprenticeships in the workplace. There were some striking results…… Apprenticeships in the Care Sector
