HIRE, TRAIN, AND RETAIN
The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) was designed with you in mind. East Central Illinois workNet is your source for help to hire, train, and retain a strong workforce.
We can support the onboarding of new employees with coaching, support services, and a reimbursement of up to half their wages for up to six months.
We can refer you to Parkland College to design an apprenticeship program, which we can support through training grants.
Career coaching and scholarships
Eligible employees can qualify for job training scholarships, career coaching, and supportive services.
We assist employees and employees through the layoff process by providing pre-layoff workshops.
If a group of employees need training, you can apply for an incumbent worker training grant through WIOA.
Workers whose jobs are affected or wages are reduced as a result of increased imports may qualify for aid through the Trade Adjustment Assistance Act.
