H.I.R.E. - Helping Individuals Regain Employment
An Evidence Based and Strength Centered Workforce Development Approach
The H.I.R.E program is designed to train workforce teams on evidence-based and strength centered employment focused approaches. It is a comprehensive program to help staff obtain skills for helping their clients become gainfully employed even if they may have severe barriers.
H.I.R.E. directs focus to training clients for skills that are currently demanded by area employers. It also works to expand the range of resources available for meeting the job search and job retention needs of clients.
The typical workforce system, by design of the federal government, includes a tiered approach to entering employment. Core services or self-directed job search is through a universal access system open to the public. This self-directed model may work for some, however it presents immense challenges for the hardest to employ.
The Helping Individuals Regain Employment (H.I.R.E) program provides participants with supported and structured case managed navigation through the career exploration, job search, job placement, and job retention processes. For applicants or recipients who do not possess key skills to complete self-directed job search that lead to gainful employment a more intensive job search and placement assistance services are needed. Various funding sources must be identified to assist the job placement, TANF and Justice Involved included.
If barriers are still present and need to be addressed with education or talent development, then referral to training services through various Workforce and Career Services remedies may be provided. This tiered approach is designed to assist those who are in need of more progressive support in their employment endeavors.
