Finding a quality workforce can be difficult during challenging times. Some of the tools we offer to help with recruitment include:

  • Hiring Events- Have your workforce needs changed, causing the need for accelerated hiring? Is your business expanding and in need of additional workforce to meet increased demand? If so, a hiring event might be right for you! Whether it's at your place of business or in one of our professional settings, our team, can coordinate hiring events and put you face to face with workforce talent.

Workforce Preparation Challenges

Is your business encountering challenges related to a workforce that is unprepared to meet the demands of a 21st-century global economy? If so, check out these tools that are available to help you grow and develop your workforce.

  • Registered Apprenticeship- A registered apprenticeship is a voluntary, industry-driven system for occupations requiring a range of high-level skills. It is full-time, paid employment and training with built-in career placement. Registered Apprenticeships provided employers with the opportunity to grow and develop their own workforce. To find out more about integrating apprenticeships into your hiring practices, contact one of our business service liaisons.

  • On-the-Job Training (OJT)- Does your business need skilled workers but can't afford to keep hiring and training? OJT lets you hire and train workers in gainful employment opportunities and get reimbursed up to 50% of the employee's salary for your efforts. If OJT sounds right for your business, contact a business service liaison. 

  • The Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC)- Helps targeted workers move from economic dependency into self-sufficiency as they earn a steady income and become contributing taxpayers, while participating employers are able to reduce their income tax liability. 

  • Arizona Career Readiness Credential (ACRC)- Are your new hires lacking foundational work readiness skills in areas such as communication, situational judgment, workplace reading and mathematics? If so, the ACRC may be right for your business. The ACRC prepares job seekers for success by demonstrating their command of seven skill areas that are relevant to every occupation, industry, and career pathway across the state. Speak to one of our Business Service Liaisons about incorporating ACRC into your hiring practices.
