Going PRO Talent Fund information session offered for employers

REGION- Michigan Works! Region 7B will be hosting a free information session for employers who want to learn more about the Going PRO Talent Fund on April 18 from 1:30-3 p.m. Employers may choose to attend in-person at the Ogemaw County Service Center at 2389 S. M-76 in West Branch; or by Zoom.

The Going PRO Talent Fund (Talent Fund) makes awards to employers to assist in training, developing and retaining current and newly hired employees. Training funded by the Talent Fund must be short-term and fill a demonstrated talent need experienced by the employer. Training must lead to a credential for a skill that is transferable and recognized by industry.

The Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity – Workforce Development awards funds to employers through Michigan Works! agencies. Michigan Works! Business Services staff conduct fact-finding sessions with employers to assess their talent skill gaps, suitable training providers, and availability of federal funding sources. Staff also assists with the application process.
