Employer Thoughts on SC Works:

“SC Works’ Upstate locations were so helpful during the extended recruiting operations for the 2020 Census. Their job fairs were always well organized and productive for our recruiters. They were flexible and generous with the use of their office space for regularly scheduled recruiting appointments as well. Staffing the decennial census is an immense task and we could not have done it without their assistance.”

SC Works Greater Upstate provides multiple training incentives to local industry.

On the Job Training (OJT) grants are designed to assist employers with a wage subsidy during the training period, as an incentive to the employer to hire individuals who lack marketable skills for the current job market.

The Work Experience (WX) program is designed to provide job seekers having little to no work experience up to a twelve (12) week program where they work in a real-world job environment. This is intended to give them the opportunity to develop soft skills and work experience that can then be included in a resume for seeking work where experience is required or preferred by employer. All WX participants are paid SC Works Greater Upstate.

The Incumbent Worker Training (IWT) grants provide reimbursement to help businesses respond to changing skills requirements caused by new technology, retooling, new product lines, or new organizational structuring.
