|Interns on the Payroll|
|Topic||Training and Development, HR Planning & Recruitment|
Interns can have many benefits to the companies that bring them on board. They can take on projects that have been put on a back burner due to time constraints, energize the business with their enthusiasm, bring the perspective of their generation to the workplace, and can even supply expertise in the latest technologies. Also, a formal internship gives employers the opportunity to observe the intern in an actual work setting and evaluate their potential as a full-time hire. Pricewater House Coopers (PwC) has a formal internship program which their HR department believes is key to developing a quality workforce. Most interns are found through cultivated relationships with college campuses or through employee referrals or word of mouth.
