JobsNow Workforce Initiative

JobsNow web header

The Regional Chamber’s JobsNow workforce initiative was created to help close the gap between the demand for skilled labor and the supply of workforce-ready employees in the Valley by publicizing available jobs, connecting qualified workers to those positions and attracting talent to the area.

If you have utilized the Regional Chamber's JobsNow program, we encourage you to share your thoughts HERE.


PUBLICIZING AVAILABLE JOBS

Program partner WKBN promotes in-demand jobs and openings on weekly news telecasts. Designed to reach a wide range of the employable population, the segments make the public aware of current job opportunities and prompt them to contact the company to apply.

REDUCING HIRING COSTS

Drug testing is available to Chamber-member businesses for their potential applicants at no cost to the employer through Steward WorkMed. This process will ensure eligibility of potential employees and allow employers to efficiently and effectively fulfill workforce demands.

ATTRACTING TALENT

Attracting qualified and capable human capital to the Valley is often difficult for many employers in the community. We can help encourage out-of-area applicants to move to the Valley in order to fulfill the workforce demands of Chamber-member businesses.
 

IS YOUR COMPANY HIRING?

“Our JobsNow segment that ran earlier this year was a HUGE success! We were able to bring in more than 30 qualified candidates for interviews. This segment, by far, was our most successful recruitment campaign to date, and we still have candidates mentioning it when they apply... many months later! This is a golden opportunity for any company to advertise open positions to the public, and we would highly recommend it.”

“The day our segment aired, we received more than 73 applications and were able to hire six qualified CDL candidates. In the past we have struggled to find good candidates, but with the help of JobsNow, we now have a pool of skilled applicants. We are also using the drug screening service through Steward WorkMed, which is a valuable asset to our company.”
