Employers are provided with the following services:

  • Needs Assessment: A systematic process for determining and addressing “gaps” between current and desired conditions. The fundamental component of the assessment is the identification of the employer’s workforce needs, taking into consideration the industry sector, job qualifications, and wage requirements.
  • Job Match: Job matching is the process of matching the right person to the right job based upon the job seeker’s strengths and the employer’s needs. IT requires thoroughly understanding the job and the qualifications of the job seeker under consideration.
  • Hiring Incentives: Employers can benefit from a wide range of hiring incentive programs designed to pair employers with the talent they need. These valuable programs include the Work Opportunity Tax Credit Program, No Cost Federal Bonding Insurance, Registered Apprenticeship programs, On-the-Job Training grants, and more.
