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.

Placement may last up to 12 months. Work hours and duration of service are determined by each participant’s situation and employment plan.
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.
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.
