Just Hire One Equals 150+ New Hires, So Far!


In January NCI Works in cooperation with LaSalle County Chambers began developing the Just Hire One Initiative. This hiring campaign, an effort to encourage area businesses to “just hire one” new employee and thereby reduce the county’s unemployment rate, was kicked off with a job fair on February 20th. Thirty businesses, representing manufacturing, logistics, healthcare and service industry businesses, participated along with 353 job seekers at the NCI Works workNet Center in Ottawa for the 3 hour event.   Initial follow up with the 30 participating businesses indicate that 157 new hires have taken place since the launch of the Just Hire One initiative. Staff is continuing to conduct follow up and share results with the workforce board and area chambers. With the success of Just Hire One in LaSalle County, plans are under way to host an initiative in Bureau County in the near future.
