CLIMB Wyoming partners with employers in a variety of occupations: construction and energy, health care, truck driving, office careers and more.
If you own or have a leadership role in a business and seek skilled, dedicated employees, CLIMB Wyoming might be the answer. Program participants have completed job-skills training and have proven themselves motivated and ready to work. CLIMB takes its role very seriously and works hard to ensure a successful relationship of long-term employment between the participant and the employer.
While the basis of the CLIMB model focuses on job-training and placement, the program also addresses life skills including communicating, problem-solving, budgeting and parenting. These additional components ensure successful relationships at the workplace and in the home, and provide the employer with a dependable, qualified employee.
CLIMB works with each community to assess the industry needs in that area. Then, CLIMB spends time with employers to identify the particular job requirements and any special considerations regarding the industry.
Using experts in the field, CLIMB provides the participant an extensive multi-week training program specific to the occupation.
CLIMB works with the employer to identify the right participant that can fulfill the needs of the position. To ensure the right fit for the business, the employer meets and interviews the potential employee.
After completion of the job-skills training, the employer hires the participant who then begins an intensive on-the-job training experience (approximately 6–8 weeks) for the specific position. During this time, the wages paid by the employer are reimbursed by CLIMB.
At the end of the reimbursement period, employers are encouraged to retain their new employee in a permanent position.
Through the entire process, CLIMB works with the employer and participant to ensure success. CLIMB participants continue to receive support and “Success in the Workplace” training while they work. CLIMB helps these women implement new on– and off-the-job skills that lead to long-term benefits for both the employee and the employer. CLIMB even offers extensive support well after the participant has graduated from the program.
