For Our Employers in Lake and Geauga County
What is NextWork?
Think of NextWork as a matchmaker for businesses and students matriculating into the workforce. The NextWork platform allows for employers to post learning opportunities (job shadows, internships, full-time and part-time jobs) and to allow students to find those opportunities with the help of their schools and parents. Nextwork seeks to build a bridge that will connect local employers with area high schools and career centers to allow for local talent to stay and work locally.
What can NextWork do for your business?
As a member of NextWork, your business will have access to a pipeline of students from Lake and Geauga County through support of their schools and career centers. Your company can post experiential learning opportunities, educate students and parents, get visibility for your brand, and also discuss workforce-related topics with schools and other employers via forums and business advisory councils. Additionally, speaking engagements from your employees related to schools can be posted and shared within the platform.

“Forming a regional workforce collaboration is not easy. It’s hard work. Nor will it happen overnight. It will take time to build relationships, reach consensus, and engage key stakeholders.” – Ohio Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation. These words ring true to the mission at hand. Though this problem will not be solved immediately, it is important that we lay the foundation in which future generations can build a strong regional workforce.
