The WORKNP.com program offers local employers up to $5,000 per open position (in the form of matching funds) for the purpose of creating a robust, attractive worker incentive package to help fill a job.
Qualifying worker incentives can include relocation expenses for moving, deposits or down payments, equipment purchases, student loan repayment help, specialized training certificates, and more.
Any North Platte Area Chamber and Development member in good standing is qualified to apply for WORKNP.com funds. Jobs must be full-time and pay at least $20/hour within three years to qualify.
North Platte Area Chamber & Development and other organizers of the WORKNP.com program believe that to truly grow our community is to add workers to the labor force, not recirculate existing employees from one local employer to another. The WORKNP.com program is aimed at bringing new, highly-skilled workers to our community, and retaining local high school and college graduates. We believe that robust worker incentive programs can help.
