Are you a RIMTA member looking to add to your team or train your current workforce? RIMTA has the expertise to guide you.
Funding programs available in Rhode Island help businesses reduce the risk of hiring new workers and keep existing employees up to date on their skills.
For example, a Bristol boat builder hired two entry-level employees and secured funding for 50% of the new hires’ wages for the first ten weeks to save $5,600. A Warwick marina saved $3,000 when training middle and upper-level management in a new spreadsheet program.
