If you own a business and you haven't heard the words "job skills placement," "on-the-job training," or "subsidized employment," you'll probably be interested to know that these effective employment solutions could help save you time and money.

Mono County Workforce Services administers these State and Federal funded programs which combine wage-paid work, job skills training, and supportive services to help individuals succeed in the workforce.

Workforce Service workers have all or part of their wages subsidized through these programs for a limited period of time. This offers employers a chance to build capacity and try out a new worker with little risk.

This model helps small businesses and non-profits that can't afford to add staff find qualified workers at a reduced cost to increase capacity and productivity.

Job Skills Placement

Places program participants in work assignments with a public, private or non-profit agency.  This program provides staff at no-cost to you.  Participants gain valuable work skills and work history to increase their future career opportunities.
 
Placement may last up to 12 months. Work hours and duration of service are determined by each participant’s situation and employment plan.
 

On-the-Job Training Program

Assists employers with the costs of hiring and training new employees.

The program offers financial reimbursement of up to 90% of the employee’s wages during the training period based on the business size.

Training periods can range from weeks to months but may not exceed 6 months. The County will determine the training period based on the employee’s current skills and experience and the complexity of the job.

Subsidized Employment Program

Reimburses employers up to $10,500 over 6 months for hiring eligible participants.

100% wage reimbursement is available for
the first 30 days, up to $3,000.

The remaining 5 months wages are reimbursed
at a flat rate not to exceed actual wages.

Testing & Interviewing Facilities

Comfortable conference, presentation, interview, orientation and meeting space is available for employers.
