On-the-Job Training saves employers money

Job training can be a costly endeavor for an employer. That’s why the Pennsylvania CareerLink links northeastern Pennsylvania businesses with the free federal On-the-Job Training program (OJT).

The program provides qualified employers with a 50 percent wage reimbursement on eligible hires for up to six months or $5,000. OJT can be used for full-time, regularly scheduled employees who work at least 30 hours a week and earn at least $10 an hour.

Potential employees are screened by CareerLink specialists, who determine program eligibility and draw up a training contract. The specialists also set up the monthly reimbursement schedule for payments that go right to your company. And businesses don’t need to worry about paperwork, because CareerLink takes care of most of that.

“The On-the-Job Training (OJT) Program offered by the PA CareerLink is a win-win for employers. It enables them to hire new employees and train them their way while receiving a reimbursement for the additional costs associated with training on the job. Among the many success stories we have had include using OJT with Hershey Foods. They have hired a number of material handlers, molding operators, chocolate operators and packers utilizing the OJT program,” said Christine Jensen, site administrator at the Hazleton and Wilkes-Barre CareerLink offices.

The On-the-Job Training program is funded by the federal Workforce Investment Act and is sponsored locally by the Luzerne/Schuylkill Workforce Investment Board. It is overseen by the Pennsylvania CareerLink. If your food processing company would like to sign up for the program, call the Hazleton CareerLink office at 570-459-3854.
