5 Reasons to Pay Your Interns



Hosting interns is a great way to grow your business while building a strong workforce. Paying your interns has benefits for your company and your intern. 5 Reasons to Pay Your Interns:

  1. To be fair – Interns do work and should be compensated accordingly


  1. To increase your pool of talented candidates – Qualified potential interns may not be able to afford to accept an unpaid internship or may be available less hours because they have to hold a paying job


  1. To assign substantive work LEGALLY – Remember the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)


  1. To stimulate your local economy – Interns will spend the money they earn


  1. To increase intern satisfaction – Paid interns are generally more committed, connected, and content
