YOU HIRE. YOU TRAIN. WE PAY.
On-the-Job Training (OJT) is a workforce development strategy in which employers have the opportunity to train, mentor, and hire candidates as they become fully proficient in their job and decrease their skill gap. Businesses are able to interview, screen, and hire participants in the OJT program just as they would any normal employee. However, individuals hired under the OJT program are eligible for wage subsidies that can support up to 50% of a new worker’s wages for 3 to 5 months, up to a maximum of $5,000. After the OJT subsidy period, it is expected that employers will retain workers in permanent employment. New employees must qualify for OJT subsidy services prior to beginning employment.
