Workforce Challenge

Matrix Packaging Machinery needed some assistance with training new hires to increase their productivity.

Workforce Solution

In September, 2010, the company partnered with the Waukesha-Ozaukee-Washington (W-O-W) Workforce Development Board, who assisted the company by helping them hire new employees through the National Emergency Grant On-the-Job Training (NEG-OJT) funds available in Wisconsin. Three people were hired that first month.

Outcomes & Benefits

This program "has been a win-win for both Matrix and the employees," says Matrix. "WFDC did all the work in placing the ad, finding the right people, and sending them to us – free! Then they paid us to train them! These new employees were eager to learn and work, and we were able to get a portion of their training time (wages) reimbursed. The three employees have proven to be excellent assets."
