Pre-Screening of candidates so your business only receives the best potential employees. Careful assessment of all applicants results in reliable, capable and qualified employees for your company.

Tax Credits

Employers may be eligible to take advantage of a variety of tax incentives, earning up to $2,400 in federal tax credits. RISE assists the business in handling all aspects of the paperwork.

Businesses enrolled with the Philadelphia Re-Entry Employment Program (P.R.E.P.) can earn up to $10,000 a year against their business privilege tax for each fulltime qualified ex-offender hired.

No Cost Federal Bonding

The Federal Bonding Program was created as an incentive to employers to hire “at-risk,” hard-to-place job seekers and may provide an employer a business insurance policy that protects an employer against loss of money or property due to employee dishonesty. The bond is good for six months up to the amount of $5,000 at no cost. To request a Federal Bond, the employer must call the Bonding Coordinator on the new employee’s start date. A simple 10-15 minute telephone interview takes place. A confirmation letter is then sent to the company and McLaughlin Company, who issues the bond directly to the employer. For further information please contact the State Bonding Coordinator at 717.787.6915 or 1.800.345.2555.

Post – Placement Services

Service does not end once a participant is placed in employment. Participants are actively engaged with a dedicated case manager who continues to work with them one on one. RISE offers incentives to our participants so they continue to do great work long after they are hired. A business is encouraged but not required to contact RISE if they have any questions or concerns with a new hire at any time.
