Connecting Employers to a Skilled Workforce
Rapid global advances in industry and technology increase the pace of change facing Oregon businesses. The challenge and the opportunity are the same—to build and maintain a skilled workforce that can readily adapt to market demands and the needs of their employers.
As an employer, you know the importance of hiring the right person. You want to start by drawing from a pool of qualified applicants with assurance that they will have the skills needed for successful job performance. After all, the success of your organization hinges on the strength of your workforce.
Adding Value to Oregon's Businesses
Profiling is a service offered to employers in Oregon, it is free of cost to the employer and enables the business to require the NCRC as a means to draw qualified candidates for hire. Each individual position within a company can be profiled to achieve a report advising the required set of skills needed to complete the job successfully. Once a position is profiled, your local WorkSource will send you candidates who have earned an NCRC at the aptitude level needed to ensure a good match. There are no fees for the Job Seeker to earn an NCRC.
Please contact Wayne Fanno or Rachel Soto to learn more about having your positions profiled.
