Finding skilled workers can be a challenge. OJT provides reimbursement to employers to help compensate for the costs associated with upgraded skills training and loss of production for newly hired employees. OJT training can assist employers who are looking to expand their businesses and who need additional staff trained with job specific skills.

OJT employers may receive 50% wage reimbursements up to $3,500 during the training period (up to 6 months) of OJT trainees to help defray personnel training costs.

The Job Training Fund, the NH Department of Business and Economic Affairs team of Business Resource Specialists and the NH Manufacturing Extension Partnership can also provide assistance to train workers and create new opportunities for growth.

The Work Experience Program (WEP) offers work experience opportunities to individuals who are receiving financial assistance from the state.

By becoming a WEP work host, non-profit organizations, community agencies, or businesses can provide work experience to WEP participants who are looking to develop new skills. WEP participants are provided an opportunity to gain the experience needed for a successful transition to paid employment. 

As a WEP work host, your organization can provide an individual with experience needed to get a job while at the same time easing your own staff’s workload. A WEP participant can also provide you with an opportunity to observe, first hand, a worker’s skills for consideration for a future paid position.
