The WDB offers On-the-Job Training (OJT). OJT assists employers with the cost of hiring and training new employees. It is funded through the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) and administered through the WDB Business Engagement and Services Provider, KRA. OJT enables employers to hire new employees and train them at their place of business while being reimbursed at a percentage of the new employees' wages during training.
As an employer, you understand the cost of hiring and training new employees. OJT helps employers by:
- Reducing the cost of hiring and training
- Providing pre-screened applicants for your position(s)
- You decide who to hire
- Assistance in designing a training plan that meets your needs
