Vista Metals Corporation

Workforce Challenge

Due to the shortage of skilled manufacturers in the Inland Empire, Vista Metals Corporation is continually looking for skilled workers. Human Resources Manager Sheryl Baez commented, “Finding workers with the right skills is always a challenge for us." The company reached out to the County of San Bernardino Workforce Investment Board for help with hiring new production staff.

Workforce Solution

Three staff were recruited through the WIB’s On-the-Job Training program which reimburses some of the costs for training new hires during the first three months of their employment.

Outcomes & Benefits

Baez is happy to report, “The WIB program has been very beneficial to us. Not just from a monetary point of view, but it has given us the opportunity to find great quality staff. The WIB representatives work effectively to match us with the right employees and also support the trainees to ensure they are successful.”
