OJT is designed to train new employees in the business setting, thereby creating a workforce of employees with job skills specific to your needs. The new employee will be on your payroll and be covered by your usual Workers’ Compensation coverage. You are reimbursed for preestablished additional training costs incurred during the OJT based on the candidate’s skill level and your needs. The amount may be higher to start and then fade as the employee develops their competencies. In addition, explore work-based training opportunities for your whole team in order to build a more well-rounded workforce that’s set up for professional growth and advancement.
