We have thousands of employees nationwide that have earned their soft skills and ready-to-work credentials and are awaiting an opportunity. Through the Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act (WIOA), we can provide assistance through the following tracks:
On-The-Job Training: This program helps businesses save money while training promising new hires – we pay a percentage* of the wages paid over the training period. (*% paid varies by state)
Paid Work Experience (Paid Internship): Employ motivated talent – at NO COST to your company! Businesses save money while talented people are able to get the job-related training they need. 100% of employee wages are paid over a training period.
Eckerd Connects provides employers with valuable resources to recruit qualified employees from a variety of backgrounds and with diverse skill sets. Services include local and state initiatives to aid in recruitment, employer training programs, and business retention and expansion efforts.
Eckerd Connects contracts with the U.S. Department of Labor and local workforce boards to meet the needs in our communities. See what some of our business partners have said about working with us.
