Hiring can pay for itself
On-the-Job Training (OJT) provides a wage reimbursement to employers to help offset the costs associated with training newly hired employees. You may receive up to 75% of an employee’s gross wages during the training period.
We can also provide hiring assistance to help you recruit the right candidates!
Employers who are ready to hire new employees for permanent positions are encouraged to inquire about this program. Contact our business services representative to get started.
The paperwork for the OTJ program was minimal and easy to complete, staff minimized my involvement by coordinating directly with the job candidate, staff was available and responsive to answer the questions I did have, and the reimbursement process is simple and straightforward.
They carefully matched their students to our job specifications and provided excellent support for everyone throughout the internship. We had the opportunity to work with very talented, excited interns and provided them some great real life experience. We’re looking forward to working with Golden Sierra again.
Golden Sierra has been very helpful to me the last 2 years. They helped me find an outstanding HR Assistant. I utilized the Wage Subsidy program. It was very easy and actually was so smooth
In a nutshell, Golden Sierra made participation in the program unexpectedly easy for employers, which was a huge relief for me as a small business owner. What I didn’t appreciate until later in the process was how much the reimbursement actually helped to offset the cost of training a new employee, particularly a first employee.
Compassion Planet looks forward to a long-term working relationship with Golden Sierra to ensure together we can provide a positive work experience to help young (18-25 year olds) at-risk youth develop the necessary work and people skills to ensure that they will be productive and successful contributors to our community.
My experience working with Golden Sierra has been very positive. The process to hiring our intern was painless and smooth, the Golden Sierra team did a great job in finding the right candidates and onboarding the intern.
[Golden Sierra has] been extremely helpful over the last year in our hiring needs. They helped me with a Hiring Event, they did it all. Advertised, took reservation, came early to set up and check the applicant in and cleaned up. We received 20 resumes from that event. 12 of which we had or will have for interviews.
I’m looking forward to participating in the WEX program again not only for technical interns but for other positions for my growing company.
Candidates placed by Golden Sierra are hardworking individuals who stay on-task, are willing to learn new skills and desire to be a positive member of our work team.
We have two employees who graduated from the OJT Program, our office manager who is going on four years and a computer technician who has been here for 1 ½ years. Golden Sierra posted a job description for a Business Services Independent Contractor. Within a few days we had 10 applicants to interview and employed a highly qualified person from the group.
