When businesses downsize or close, SkillSource can help. We assemble partners and resources to assist affected workers and employers to navigate next steps. Large business or small, ten workers or hundreds, you can turn to SkillSource.
SkillSource helps businesses hire people with potential and then reimburses part of their wages and training costs as they learn on-the-job. The program reduces costs associated with employer recruitment, training, and job turnover.
Incumbent worker training helps qualifying companies upgrade the skills of existing employees to help businesses remain competitive, retain employees and promote from within, increase profits and support new growth.
SkillSource will help businesses cover training costs. The employer’s cost share can be met by paying employee wages during the training. Employees must have 6 or more months of experience working for your company (exceptions apply for trainee cohorts).
SkillSource places students with businesses for internships or work experience while paying trainee wages. These paid opportunities help career-seekers gain job readiness and occupational skills while giving local businesses extra staff in exchange for mentorship and training. These experiences often result in excellent job candidates for participating businesses.
