Workforce services available to county residents and businesses

The San Bernardino County Workforce Development Board (WDB) provides a multitude of resources to all county residents. Recently, WDB Director Brad Gates was invited to speak at the Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce to talk about the many workforce programs available, including insights into our region’s labor market data.

For businesses, WDB can provide customized recruitment and training events, as well as on-the-job training that reimburses 50 percent of wages for the first 480 hours of training for employers. Additionally, there are programs for business retention and a layoff aversion rapid response to assist dislocated workers.

For job seekers, WDB provides employment counseling and placement, career assessment, planning and training, resume and interview assistance as well as referrals and technology resources at three different America’s Job Centers of California they operate.

A free Human Resource hotline (877) 282-3763 is also available to answer employment and compliance related inquiries and more. Furthermore, WDB regularly holds free, live-streamed Business Service Webinars, which are also recorded and uploaded to view on-demand on our WDB YouTube page.
