GVCSHRM believes that government and
employers play a role in providing worker training and development
opportunities to maintain a skilled labor force. Below you will find tools and resources to support you in these efforts.
GVCSHRM is also committed
to helping HR professionals remove the barriers that may prevent
qualified workers from being fully considered for jobs—particularly
because of their long-term unemployment status or criminal history. Below you will find information about tax credits especially when hiring veterans and others who have been out of the workforce for an extended period of time.
To aid in the development of students soon to enter our workforce, GVCSHRM and Junior Achievement
of Central & Upstate NY have formed a collaborative partnership to
promote work readiness in schools across our nine-county region. See below to find out more about JA programs.
"I look forward to teaching JA each year! The JA activities are engaging and allow me to bring my world into the classroom." JA Volunteer
In an effort to assist individuals trying to move into the workforce, GVCSHRM partners with the Volunteers of America's 'Working Wardrobe' program by collecting donations of gently used female and male suits, blouses/shirts, dress shoes, any business causal attire, jewelry, belts and purses/brief cases/portfolios. These items can be brought to any GVCSHRM monthly program, conference or event. See below for resources to aid in the recruiting of the long-term unemployed.
"It's more than just clothes, I see people light up with confidence. Someone believes in them and they begin to believe in themselves." - Gail Berkes, Program Manager
If you or your organization are interested in volunteering and supporting our Workforce Readiness initiatives through any of these programs, please contact Hunter Paige at HunterPaige@gvcshrm.org.
