Wildcat is one of the city’s most trusted workforce partners for both government and business. Our partners have come to rely on us for high-quality and reliable support while playing an active role in furthering our mission.
New York has come a long way, but significant challenges remain to ensuring everyone’s participation in its economic success. We are committed to comprehensive, innovative, and results-driven workforce services to step closer to economic independence for all New Yorkers.
Specifically, we provide the following services to our partners in government and business:
Our customers are not the only ones hard at work. We keep our ear to the ground and study up on individual sectors with great opportunities. That means becoming experts in your sector’s unique needs and world views. The more we know, the better our customers are prepared for interviews and to succeed at work – and the happier our partners are with the result. This also allows us to grow partnerships generating a greater variety of opportunities, creating a win-win situation for both parties.
What does this look like in the real world? A school bus driver needs different skills than the driver of a double-decker tourist bus. While the needed strengths of similar occupations don’t always cross over industries, valued skills within an industry usually remain consistent (think smiles for tourism and hospitality). Over the past several years, we’ve paid special attention to retail, health care and administrative services.
LARGE SCALE RECRUITING
Are you opening a new location? Have seasonal hiring needs? Recruiting and screening on a large scale – especially all at one time – can be overwhelming. Wildcat has the experience and ability to match employers with thousands of employees. Our approach is to get the right people from the get-go, keeping recruit-to-hire ratios low. We can execute customized recruitment and screening processes, handle facilities and event management, and logistics and scheduling from start to finish.
From mom and pop shops to smaller-scale facilities, we understand that small businesses have unique needs. Wildcat takes a much more tailored approach with small businesses and works to provide a quick response from pools of pre-qualified candidates for common positions.
Wildcat can work with your business to design and implement training programs tailored to your company’s need. We can help you access business training grants, and we provide industry-certified courses in customer service, custodial maintenance, computers and other in-demand skills.
