Thankfully, Workforce Solutions is more than a name. It’s what we do. Of 99+ problems, employee training doesn’t have to be one

How It Works 

 

We’re So Confident In Our Candidates, We'll Bank Roll Part Of The Bill

Once you contact us, we’ll connect you with a Business Services Specialist dedicated to understanding who you are and what you do. Based on your company, we tailor an agreement, outlining the occupational training we would provide to approved candidates, summarizing the steps taken, and the deadlines and objectives to be met.

But that’s the paperwork, in real life, you’ve got options

 

Work Experience          Apprenticeships          Occupational Training   

 

 

Work Experience

This is where our Business Specialists become workforce matchmakers, uniting people to the positions you need filled.

Prior to stepping foot in your business, we work one-on-one with candidates, assessing their current qualifications, experience, and aptitude. The results inform us of the necessary training they’ll require before becoming eligible to apply for On-The-Job Site Work Experience Training. 

If we’re recommending them as a potential candidate for the Work Experience Training program, they have earned our seal of approval. The best part - not only is our workforce matchmaking expertise free of charge, but you can apply for financial relief to cover the training costs.

 

Apprenticeships

Competing in a growing economy means staffing knowledgeable employees you can rely on. We believe in the future of Borderplex so much that we invest in local apprenticeships whole heartedly, knowing that it’s an investment, stimulating the growth of our home.

These structured programs are designed to create valuable employees with a comprehensive knowledge of their industry. By combining classroom instruction for the practical and theoretical applications required for highly skilled occupations with the hands-on experience, apprenticeships power people.
