One-Stop is seeking health-care employers for new training project

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -  Pima County One Stop Career Center is putting out the call for health care employers to participate in a pilot employee training program, which will run through September 30.  According to a recent release the program is aimed at improving employee performance and retention. One Stop is offering $24,000 per employer (up to five employers) to participate in the program.

Training will be for new employees who trained via Pima Community College's Pathway to Healthcare program or existing entry-level employees who meet the Pathways to Healthcare criteria and whose employer believes they need to improve their performance to retain their jobs. 

The training may include customer service, interpersonal skills, work ethic, attitude, time management, reliability, workplace relationships, safety protocols, clinical practice protocols, company policies and procedures or other topics the employer needs. 

According to One-Stop they will work with the employers to determine employee eligibility, develop a training plan and provide reimbursement at $30 an hour for one-on-one orientation training for 20 hours a week for four weeks for up to 10 employees per company.  

Additional funding and time may be added depending on the success of the pilot program.
