WORKFORCE SERVICES

You need the right people for your team, and a skilled workforce to stay competitive in today’s economy. Identifying, attracting, and maintaining skilled talent is necessary, but not easy.

Our Workforce Services provides Florida employers an individualized and tailored approach to overcome these challenges through skilled veterans who bring a mission-focused mindset.

WORKFORCE GRANT

Build and maintain your skilled workforce

The Veterans Florida Workforce Training Grant reimburses qualified employers 50% of industry skills-based training costs for new or current employees. The skills your team members need will change over time, and the Workforce Training Grant helps your business keep up with industry trends and reach your goals faster. Approved training can be provided by third parties, in house corporate, or on the job training.

It’s easy to get started. Your dedicated point of contact at Veterans Florida will walk you through the process step by step.

These services are offered primarily for employers within Florida’s targeted high tech industries.

WORKFORCE RECRUITING

Recruit the Best of the Best

Our Workforce Recruiting services cater to Florida employers seeking to fill open jobs with transitioning US military service members, veterans, and spouses. We receive hundreds of veterans’ resumes a month and do the heavy lifting of screening and matching top talent for your open careers. Our team of military veteran recruiters know how to review military resumes with you and find job matches based on skills candidates gained while in the military.

These services are offered at no cost, and open jobs must be in Florida. 

FLORIDA SKILLBRIDGE INITIATIVE

Your Untapped Talent Pipeline

The U.S. Department of Defense SkillBridge Program enables servicemembers within 6 months of retirement or separation and with their commanders’ approval to gain workforce training at an employer. Improve your workforce at no cost, as DOD maintains the servicemembers’ salary and benefits during the training period, and tap into a pipeline of talented transitioning servicemembers through the Florida SkillBridge Initiative.

“By far the best coordinated statewide initiative I’ve ever seen,”
-Derrick Fishback, former SkillBridge participant and Amazon Web Services Engagement Manager

We guide employers through every step of the process:

  • Develop training
  • Obtain DOD approval
  • Recruit SkillBridge participants
