NEW HAVEN — Marking its first anniversary at the beginning of June, New Haven Works announced it had helped some 330 city residents find employment. New Haven Works has built partnerships with Yale University and other employers who hire new workers for regular employment; provided paid on-the-job trainings for in-demand skilled work in fields such as information technology; and created a pipeline of qualified, vetted New Haven residents ready for jobs. New Haven Works provides a wide range of support services for both employers and prospective employees, and utilizes state incentives like the Governor’s StepUP program.
“We are prepared to work hand in hand with organizations like this,” said Gov. Dannel P. Malloy at a press conference marking the anniversary, “organizations that are doing everything in their power to have a properly-prepared workforce to fill the needs of employers with great-paying jobs and good benefits in the community in which they live.”
