The Fruita Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to partner with local businesses and organizations to bring our FACC members an exclusive 12-week, bi-weekly program to help your business develop better practices for your current workforce and attain new employees through internship opportunities. The Next Step program will prepare your business to take the next step in adding to its workforce while providing you an opportunity to give the future workforce a place to take the first step in their career.
The goal of this program is to help our members implement quality employee recruitment and training processes to maximize their employee retention and reduce staffing headaches. At the end of 12 weeks, you will have the systems in place, position defined and confidence to hire an intern to support your business.
You are expected to attend all classes to graduate, and there is no cost to attend. This is an exclusive event for Fruita Area Chamber of Commerce members and will be offered only twice per year.
