Workplace Training and Education

We promote the concept of lifelong learning and continuous career development. Given today's tight labor market, workplace training is critical to continued success and is a valuable retention tool. Many businesses have unique hiring needs that make it difficult to identify qualified job candidates. In many instances, Workforce Development invests funds to offset the extraordinary costs of training new employees. Training projects for existing workers are funded based on funding availability, and the type of training and its impact on the business' competitive position, productivity, market share and profit.

We fund to provide job seekers with training opportunities in fields relevant to today's job market. We also provides ancillary services that are designed to provide assessment of skills and career guidance for job seekers. Promote your company's internship and on-the-job training opportunities at our workforce development resource centers. Our candidates have transferable skills for your industry and will prove to be an asset to your company. For workplace training and education assistance, you may e-mail your request to hweschke@baltimorecountymd.gov.

Assistance For Business Downsizing

Downsizing your workforce is an unfortunate situation for both the business and the affected employees. We have implemented systems to effectively assist businesses, while creating a more immediate connection to our services for the dislocated workers. As a key partner on the Maryland Dislocated Worker Unit Rapid Response Team, Baltimore County businesses and affected employees have an excellent resource to provide valuable information about transition, training and reemployment services of which they are typically unaware.

Our Services are customized according to both the business' and employees needs and may include:
