Workforce Alliance directs a system that is nimble, flexible and adaptable, generating economic opportunity for business and job seekers in our

communities. Funding from the CT Department of Labor, the U.S. Department of Labor, and others, plus private sources, allows Workforce Alliance

to provide these free services to businesses and job seekers:


You Hire. You Train. We Pay wage reimbursements to hire and train on-the-job.

Employers can be reimbursed up to 75% of an eligible new hire's salary while they learn the

skills needed. With our variety of resources, almost any full-time job is eligible.


Hire an unemployed person and be eligible for wage subsidies.

Recruiting & Hiring Events:

We host and promote hiring events and deliver jobseekers through the American Job

Centers. Business services representatives work one-on-one with employers to find the

right candidate and qualify for incentives. Already have a candidate in mind? Work with our

staff to verify eligibility prior to starting work and still qualify for incentives.


Share job postings

Share jobs with our Business Services Representatives and let us screen

candidates for you. Employers are also encouraged to

create accounts on, a free service of the CT

Department of Labor.

Train Workers in New Skills & Grow Your Workforce

Matching grants can help build a pool of candidates intended for hiring

with a specific skill, or enhance existing employee skills to encourage

advancement. Contact: Wanda Lary.


Combine our services and incentives with a registered apprenticeship, where skilled

workers share their knowledge to help an apprentice become an expert in a skilled trade.

Maintain your company knowledge and ensure a competent future workforce. Related

classroom instruction required.
