Employers

Large and small businesses in Sonoma County need to know that incoming employees have the core skills needed to meet developing workforce demands and to ensure worker success in the workplace. Young people need to be assured that they are prepared to enter the workforce upon completing their education. To that end, the Sonoma County Office of Education, with the assistance of the Sonoma County Workforce Investment Board and New ways to Work, has developed a program that can ensure that work-readiness (as defined by business) is a goal within the systems that prepare youth, and that youth can earn a credential that will put them at the “head of the line” when seeking employment in the county. For this program to be truly successful, the business community will need to recognize this certification and include it as a part of their hiring practices. In this way, students will see the true value of becoming Work-Ready Certified and businesses will have better-qualified applicants from which to choose when filling entry-level positions. Businesses will receive the added benefit of having their company listed as a participating employer in a wide variety of marketing and promotional materials, including school newsletters and the Sonoma County Office of Education website.
