What people are saying about US

“Working with our local workforce office has helped make implementing the OJT program an easy part of our everyday hiring process. It’s something that our managers have embraced and is truly a wonderful program…Not only because of the benefits we as a company receive – that’s just a small part of it; but primarily because of the extra support and incentives our new hires have to guide them through their transition back into the workforce. It benefits everyone involved & has been a smooth process for us.”

-Leah Bolander, HUB Patterson Technology Center Effingham
