Riverside County Workforce Development Aids Businesses to Fulfill Employment Needs
There are many ways that Riverside County Workforce Development can assist businesses throughout the County of Riverside. Riverside County Workforce Development has sites throughout the County where job seekers frequently go daily to seek employment. Experienced Career Coaches are on-site that work with businesses and job seekers to connect them to employment and any necessary training to obtain jobs that are in high demand in the labor market. If a business would like expanded services, they can customize and host a job fair at the business or at any of their locations, assist in pre-screening applicants, and administer any necessary testing. Riverside County Workforce Development can also assist businesses by advertising their recruitments to qualified job-seekers on-line through Cal-Jobs, social media and at any of their locations.
Riverside County Workforce Development also has professional employees that administer programs that are dedicated to assist businesses at no cost to the employer. These programs include:
On the Job Training: This program will reimburse up to 50% of an employee’s salary for a maximum of 480 hours of training for full-time positions. This is a great program that allows businesses to hire and train an employee while they are actually performing the job. The position must be a permanent position working in a high demand industry, which includes positions in manufacturing, utilities, logistics, construction and healthcare.
Employment Training Panel: This program is eligible to specific employers that pay into a state training tax and wish to upgrade the skills of their existing employees. The training is completely customized to meet the business’s needs and is provided by the University of California, Riverside or the employer themselves
Rapid Response Team: This is a team of Workforce Development, Employee Development Department, and Covered California employees, which offer direct services to businesses experiencing lay-offs. Their Rapid Response Team will immediately work with individuals that are being laid-off and can also set-up job fairs for businesses that are hiring and recruiting individuals within the same industry.
Riverside County Workforce Development is committed to assisting businesses and is readily prepared to accommodate the growing needs of businesses in this region.
