The Grundy Livingston Kankakee Workforce Board is partnering with local companies to ensure their workers receive the skills they need to be viable in the workplace. From a grant awarded to the Workforce Board, employers are able to offset their training expense to help current employees who need new or upgraded skills in order to retain employment
Plochman's, a manufacturing company in Kankakee County is utilizing these funds to train employees on a new production line. In addition, Morris Hospital and Healthcare Center employees are participating in a training to help their Medical Coding staff learn the changes and requirements from ICD 9 Coding to ICD 10 Coding.
