Incumbent Worker Training
The Calumet Area Industrial Commission (CAIC) is working with its manufacturing company members, and others in the southern part of Chicago/Cook County to drive the development of a regional talent development supply chain, regional partnership, and management metrics. Organizationally, this is occurring through CAIC’s Human Resource Committee composed solely of manufacturing company representatives. Eligible member companies and others will provide On-the-Job Training for new hires and enhanced training for their incumbent workers. Companies receiving funding to reimburse costs of employee training programs have included ArcelorMittal’s Riverdale plant, Gelita, Polyair, and Chicago Magnesium.
