Platform to Employment: A Pathway To Opportunity For The Long-Term Unemployed
Join Janet M. Brady, Employment Specialist with The WorkPlace, to learn about Platform to Employment® (P2E), a free, five week program to help long term unemployed residents find work.
Since its inception, P2E has helped over 1,000 of Connecticut’s long-term unemployed residents find work. The program empowers individuals, fosters self-sufficiency and focuses on performance improvements with measurable outcomes. Over 40% of this graduating class has already found employment.
P2E begins with a five-week preparatory program that helps participants confront barriers to employment through coaching, skills assessments, career readiness workshops and programs to rebuild confidence and focus. These graduates have acquired new job search skills and will now receive assistance in finding employment. P2E covers the cost of wages during a trial period where employers can evaluate if a candidate is a good fit for an open position. The trial period is a proactive step toward meeting the hiring needs of Connecticut employers by providing risk-free access to skilled, motivated workers.
