Why does Dale keep hiring apprentices through Community Solutions?

“We’ve built a loyal relationship. Community Solutions are not just a supplier, more like a project partner. They’re always responsive and I never feel like just a client or a number. It is so much better and easier than managing apprentices ourselves.”
