MYB receives Incumbent Workforce Development Program grant

Hendersonville, N.C., September 1, 2014 — Mind Your Business recently became the proud recipient of a North Carolina Incumbent Workforce Development Program (IWDP) grant. This honor allows MYB to add value to the company by focusing on closing the skill gaps for employees, through improving education via training and certifications. Employees that are “incumbent workers” — that is, they work for MYB and are adult, U.S. citizens that live and work in North Carolina — will have the opportunity to receive state-funded job-skills training that will help them to pursue higher-level jobs within the company, or even outside the company, depending on the level of skill and certification they achieve. Mind Your Business’ employees will be able to participate in programs that can help improve occupational skills, as well as enroll in more basic education programs such as literacy and English as a second language. The funds will be dispersed via the N.C. Department of Commerce’s Division of Workforce Solutions and the Local Workforce Development Board. The latter organization also monitors the way the funds are used. All training programs must be completed within 12 months of grant disbursement. Funds can be spent on the cost of instructors, tuition, textbooks and other materials, and computer software. They may not be spent on travel, training program development, website development, public relations, or a myriad of other expenditures.]]>
