Employers: Hire, Train and Retain Employees to Build Your Skilled Workforce
Partner with Oakland County Michigan Works! to Launch a Structured On-the-Job Training Program
We assist you with the cost of hiring and training new employees, reimbursing your organization with up to half of a trainee’s wages – up to $5,000, depending on funds available.
The training program is jointly developed with Oakland County Michigan Works!, or you may be able to use an existing plan. Applicants are pre-qualified by us and referred to you for an interview, or you can send candidates to us for eligibility screening.
You hire on-the-job trainees based on needs of your business. Trainees earn wages and learn specific skills on the job, on your equipment and under your team’s supervision and mentoring.
Those trainees who successfully complete the program retain permanent employment with your company.
