    Programs that provide training that is designed to enable employees to perform a job that their previous training has not equipped them for or to adapt to changes in the workplace. Retraining may be needed when new methods or equipment are introduced or when jobs for which employees have trained are phased out. It may also be provided by employers or governments for employees who have been laid off and are no longer able to find employment using the skills they already possess. The need for retraining may arise because of a decline in a particular industry sector or because of rapid technological change.

Through enrollment individuals are provided with case management services that not only connect them with community resources to assist in removing barriers, but also assist in working on the soft skills that will make them more marketable to employers. There are two phases to WR, pre-placement and post-placement. Pre-Placement is the phase where an individual participates in state approved activities such as Community Service, Paid Work Experience, Education and Training and Job Search for a predetermined amount of hours each week. The individual remains in this phase until employment of 20 hours or more is obtained. Once employed for 20 or more hours the individual enters the post-placement phase where they remain for at least 6 months. During the post placement phase the Service Coordinator provides case management to assure the individual is transitioning positively into the workforce as well as providing support and resources. Once an individual has worked 6 consecutive months they have successfully completed the program.AlleghenyLife'sWork of Western PALife'sWork of Western PA
