Consider the time and expense involved in finding talent:

  • Writing an accurate job description
  • Posting the job opening
  • Attracting candidates with the right qualifications and “fit” for your organization
  • Reviewing resumes, sorting the qualified from the unqualified
  • Greeting, organizing, and directing job applicants at your place of business
  • Facility space for interviews
  • Pre-employment assessment tools
It all adds up to nearly $5,500 per new employee!

Great Lakes Bay Michigan Works! will take on this initial time and expense involved in finding talent for you – at no cost.

We help employers post more than 7,000 job openings annually, playing a key role in filling most of them. If you are an employer that has positions available in Saginaw, Midland, Bay, Gratiot, or Isabella county, contact our Business Services Team today!

Employer Services

Posting job openings

Our BST can help you write and post the most effective job posting for free on Michigan’s online recruitment sites, giving you access to tens of thousands of Michigan workers – with qualifications ranging from PhD to GED.

Finding hard-to-find skill sets

Because we are one of 16 Michigan Works! organizations throughout the state – and one of 600 nationally – we can reach out to our colleagues outside the region for specialized recruitment needs on your behalf.

Single company job fairs

If confidentiality is a concern or if your recruitment needs are highly specific, we can host a job fair for you. Alleviate traffic at your place of business by using our Service Centers for application drop off. Our facilities are also open to you at no charge for interviewing, testing, and employee orientation.

Workforce training

In the last few years, we’ve helped local employers build a more competitive workforce by providing funding to train thousands of area residents for success in high-demand industries like health care, manufacturing, construction, information technology and business services.

Labor market information

Ever wondered what other employers in the area are paying for similar jobs? We can help you find accurate, reliable, real-time information to remain competitive as your recruit.

Collecting and sorting resumes

Nothing is more frustrating or time-consuming than reading through a pile of unqualified job applications or resumes that don’t meet your qualifications. Your own BST rep will collect resumes and applications for you, based on your specific criteria. The level of sorting we do is up to you, including door-to-door delivery.

Pre-employment assessment tools

We offer a variety of assessment tools to assist you in screening applicants and gauging their potential in your organization. Talk to your BST for more information.

Apprenticeships

If you’d like to start a discussion about developing an apprenticeship program, contact your Great Lakes Bay Michigan Works! BST representative. He or she will help facilitate linking you with local, regional, and state experts who can help.

Patrick Tagget, Northern Concrete Pipe, Inc.

"With the help of Great Lakes Bay Michigan Works!, we were awarded an STTF grant in 2018 to help train 33 employees at a special program only offered in Tennessee. This training was vital to us meeting industry demands and enabled our people to network with the best in the business, growing their knowledge and technical expertise."

Heather Newport, MTW

“Great Lakes Bay Michigan Works! has been such a great resource for us in the last few years! With the help of our BST representative, we have been able to employ and retain some great local talent. Our BST rep is responsive and helpful with any requests and offers suggestions on how we can utilize Michigan Works! resources.”

Steve Myers, Mobile Medical Response

"Faced with 25 open paramedic positions and no qualified candidates on file, we turned to Great Lakes Bay Michigan Works! for help. The result was an accelerated emergency medical technician (EMT)-to-paramedic training program that pays students to train. A model for success, the program was nominated for the 2017 Michigan Works Association Impact Award."

Brian Sheets, Avalon & Tahoe

"Going Pro funds have helped us increase sales 79% and employ 100 more people in our community. Over the last 3-4 years, these training funds have empowered us with the extra tools, training, and strategic planning required to lead our company to new levels.”
