On-the-Job Training

What is On-the-Job Training?

On-the-Job Training (OJT)*  is a program designed to help your company screen, interview and train new employees.  A job developer will meet with you to develop a structured, customized training plan at no cost to you.

A Workforce New York staff person will interview prospective candidates and send you job ready applicants.  Workforce New York will also share the costs of the trainee's wages to offset the cost of training.

Trainees have the opportunity to learn an occupational skill and earn a paycheck at the same time.

OJT can help your business by:

Saving you time and money by screening applicants for potential employees
Developing job descriptions and designing a training plan to meet your needs
Lowering training costs by reimbursing up to 50% of you new employee's wages during the training period
Providing training prior to hire and support during the transition to work
Helping to resolve problems that influence employee performance and productivity
Giving support to the supervisor during the training period
Providing training dollars to upgrade the skills of your current employees
