Incumbent Worker Training
Incite Inc. supports incumbent worker training and offers an annual calendar of workshops and events to consortia member companies. As an organization, we believe incumbent worker training will help advance & retain workers in skilled, living wage occupations. For example in the past two years over twenty five individuals have received or are in the process of receiving credentials in the areas of: Six Sigma Green and Black Belt, Quality Auditing, Human Resources, Project Management, and Geometric Dimension and Toleracing. The people that received credentials by participating are now expected to give back by training other incumbent workers within the manufacturing sector. This will eventually build a sustainable training network within the business community. The Sustainable Training Network ensures we will always have resources for business regardless of the fluctuation in our own funding.
On-the-Job Training is a hire first reimbursement program that can help offset the cost of hiring and training a skilled workforce. The program is available to employers who have a need for skilled employees but are having a difficult time finding skilled employees. The employer receives a percentage of wages reimbursed based on a predetermined training plan and time frame. From the trainee’s perspective, on-the-job training is a great way to gain employment for which he/she needs additional training to acquire the knowledge, skills and abilities that are necessary to perform the job.
