Learn from the experience of other local business. Here's what they had to say about our business services...
“As a small company, the grant helped us provide affordable training to employees, which would otherwise not be affordable."
“RochesterWorks! is as professional as you’re going to get…They have more ownership than most outplacement firms I know and really try to keep employment healthy in their state. They have a different level of commitment that shows in how they treat employees and everyone involved in a downsizing or closing. We were extremely impressed with the services they provided.”
“The way RochesterWorks! communicates and works together with the City, the Department of Labor and other organizations to bring services to small businesses is truly invaluable.”
“It is one of our greatest resources…We hold job fairs at their downtown location periodically. They have a great pool of quality skilled people. The volume of individuals we hire has helped our business grow substantially.”
“RochesterWorks! was able to take what started out to be an intimidating grant application process and make it understandable and achievable.”
“RochesterWorks! promotes our opportunities and refers quality people to us. They streamline the process, set expectations, and partner with us to create a win-win situation.”
“Getting involved in Recruiting ‘Round Rochester, for example, has provided us with the opportunity to meet job seekers in a small job fair environment. The process is easy—from getting involved to interviewing those that attend. Once applicant needed to apply online and another to complete an online assessment as a part of the hiring process. They could use the computers available in the Resource Room at the Career Center to finalize their application and complete the assessment all in one sitting.”
“I highly recommend fellow employers to utilize RochesterWorks! to assist with the sourcing of candidates. The services they offer to prepare and assist candidates to get back to work are practical and helpful. They are able to connect the right people to the right opportunities.”
“The staff at RochesterWorks! responds quickly to requests and provides fabulous customer support. It is apparent from my interactions with the staff at RochesterWorks! over the years that they care and work hard for the people they are assisting, the community, and the employers.”
“I think RochesterWorks! is too much of a secret here in Rochester. Anybody that has had bad experiences dealing with grants needs to know that it’s not the nightmare that it used to be 10-15 years ago. One of the things that RochesterWorks! has certainly done over the years is coming out on-site to help us through and simplify the paperwork process so that we can take advantage of it! It’s one of the things that I talk to our clients about all the time. You’re missing great opportunities to leverage if you don’t take advantage of these opportunities.”
“It’s these programs [grants] that have helped Rochester grow throughout the years…. The grants have assisted in our growth so we’re able to take the dollars we would have used for training and reinvest them back into our organization. Without all the grants that we have gotten over the years we would be behind again, not growing.”
