How did the training benefit the employee? 

“The Workforce Development Board Incumbent Worker Training Funding provided us with an opportunity to promote and skill up a current employee instead of hiring an external candidate. Now, the employee has been through their training.

What does your new role look like and what skills have you gained from your training?

 “The employee’s new role provides them with the ability to create their own schedule. The employee has developed leadership skills such as organization, budgeting, and inventory.”

 This funding has allowed us to manage through one of the most challenging hiring phases in our recent history.  It’s given us the option to hire and train up candidates in whom we saw potential, but may not have been a perfect match in employment history and experience, as well as giving those staff an opportunity to expand their careers into a field they were interested in.  Our staff feel passionate about making an impact and the individuals we have hired and trained through this program and now getting the opportunity to make a real and immediate impact in the positive change in the lives of our clients.
