We have created a win-win opportunity for both the business and the potential employee.  Providing three types of job services, we can offer employers varying levels of support to develop long term and loyal employees.  Our representatives will work with your management team to train new employees we have matched to your available position and monitor the employee through the first year of their tenure in your business.
As our goal is to provide an employee that is successful in meeting all job expectations, we will be available for consultation to ensure this outcome.

What's the benefit to you as an employer?  In addition to recruiting a great employee who you can count on, you receive support and consultation at no cost for a year after the employee is hired from The Learning Academy Employment Services representative assigned.  There are also various tax incentives available for hiring an individual that we place in your business.
