No doubt about it that 2020 was a rough year for many small businesses, forcing innovation, restructuring, and sea change! This type of change is not necessarily a bad thing, but you may be trying to figure out how to upskill your workforce to meet these changes.

Ohio’s TechCred program offers a reimbursement to employers (as long as you have at least one W2 employee, you’re eligible to apply!) in a variety of areas, including:

  • Business Technology (Need to get someone certified for digital marketing? Check! Certified Financial Modeling & Valuation Analyst? Check! Excel? Check!)
  • Healthcare Technology
  • IoT and Cybersecurity (Yes, please! We need more of you!)
  • Military and Smart Transportation
  • Construction Technology (Okay, we have at least a half-dozen clients in and around this industry, check it out!)
  • Information Technology
  • Manufacturing Technology (The only thing I understood on this list is Welding, but that’s why I’m in HR…)
  • Robotics/Automation

If you utilize technology but don’t see a credential on the list, you can apply for TechCred if the credential is:

  • Industry-recognized
  • Technology-focused
  • Short-term

This program reimburses up to $2,000 for each tech-focused credential and up to $30,000 per employer.

NOW is a great time to invest in your employees and your business!

As always, we’re here to help!
