Employers Can Boost Workers' Skills under Job Training Law

People chatting after a meeting

Employers have increased opportunities to build the skills of their employees under the business-friendly Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), supported by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).

In addition to giving young people job-ready skills, the law helps businesses enhance the knowledge of existing employees. That is particularly significant given the deep cuts that many employers have made in their training budgets in recent years.

The law allows local workforce boards to focus additional funding toward work-based training solutions for businesses.

Getting employers, educators, and community organization leaders to work together to match workers with skills has proven to be a slow process in some communities. The WIOA provides a great opportunity for businesses to upskill their workforces.

To learn more about WIOA and how you may utilize this opportunity contact your CareerSource Heartland Business Representative.

Anything I do say about the Career Source Heartland in Okeechobee will be very downplayed to the actual experience we encountered. Not only were they exceptional in helping us achieve our results for talented associates, but they were also well organized and on top of everything. Although I felt like I may be a burden they really went the extra mile to make me feel like part of their family and allowed me and my team to be ourselves and work closely together to make sure we were all very comfortable. Nothing I do or can say about them will ever amount to the wonderful experience I have had and will continue to have moving forward. They are the greatest resource in helping find you qualified candidates. With this being another store opening/market opening for me, this has by far been the easiest in terms of finding a staff. They help reduce the stress one may find when trying to find candidates to interview. I could keep going on how wonderful and great they were but it’s an experience and a great resource every business should try, they won’t regret it!!!!

 

Thank You
