The On-the-Job Training (OJT) Program under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity enables employers to grow their workforce by receiving a cash reimbursement--not a tax credit--to help offset the costs of bringing on a new employee or when upgrading the skills of a current employee. The Northwest Wisconsin Workforce Investment Board and Northwest Wisconsin CEP are focusing their efforts on ensuring that OJT contracts are being used by employers in our region as a training tool.
