Interns are people who work in your firm to gain valuable knowledge and skills about the business. Many job seekers accept internships as a way of kick starting their career while they wait for job opportunities. Some employers may take advantage of the opportunity to exploit the job seekers. We all recall our college attachments and the experiences we had. As a boss, you may be pondering on the essence of paying interns since there has been a long standing culture of not paying interns. Here are three solid reasons why you should pay your interns.

1.    Pay equals productivity

Are you wondering why your interns have been lax at work? Do they keep time and come up with bright ideas that can potentially improve the business? When you deny the interns the pay they deserve, they tend to lose motivation to work. Who wants to work for a stingy boss? They will also be in a hurry to cut ties with your company once their time with you has lapsed.

2.    Many internship applications

When college students are looking for internships, they tend to gravitate towards certain companies. Do you ever wonder why? These companies pay their interns' decent money for their time. Remember they will be spending hours of their time at your company making you money. You also find that internships can be costly as the interns have to foot their expenses. For convenience, they pick the company that is will cater to their needs and guarantee them a good learning experience. You are likely to get the best brains when the interns are happy.

3.    Fair play

We all want change in the world. How many of us are willing to make a difference? As a boss ask yourself how you would feel if you had to work for free. Though the rates differ from company to company, it is essential to offer a considerable amount. That way, there can be value for every effort one produces at work.
