While reviewing the Cleveland/Cuyahoga County Workforce Development Board’s most recent annual report, I was drawn to the OhioMeansJobs page.
I learned my firm qualifies for funding short-term training for new employees. Workers may qualify for up to $7,500 to pay for short-term training, if training is required to get a job. Reimbursement to employers is 50% of the wage rate up to a maximum wage of $25 per hour.
According to the report, workers have access to recruitment services, internet job postings, hiring and training incentives, layoff and dislocation services, and industry-specific labor market information.
