Employer Services

Workforce Investment Solutions partners with businesses to meet the workforce needs of Macon and DeWitt Counties. By assisting employers in determining their current hiring needs and workforce shortages, we can help provide training and assistance to fill the need for a qualified workforce.

 Some of the programs and services offered to employers include:  

  • Identify qualified applicants
  • Connect employers with information on tax incentives and local, state and federal grant opportunities.

On-The-Job Training Program (OJT)

OJT works with businesses to place job seekers who have training and experience that match the employer’s needs. As an incentive to employers, Workforce Investment Solutions may reimburse companies up to 50% of the wages paid to new hires for up to 6 months.

Incumbent Worker Training Program

Businesses may be able to receive resources through the Incumbent Worker Training Program. This program provides reimbursement for training of existing employees in order to meet changing skill requirements caused by new technology, retooling, new product lines, and new organizational structuring.
