The state is expanding its efforts to recruit and retain employees for the next two years.
Maryland’s Business and Professional Licensing Board has approved a new program called “Pay for Performance” that aims to help employers find, retain, and train new employees for new positions.
Marylanders will now be required to have “at least five years of experience” in a position.
They’ll also have to submit a performance report every two years, the board said in a news release.
Employers will also be required “to use the Pay for Performance program to identify and recruit employees that meet certain requirements.”
Maryland joins several other states that are now expanding their efforts to improve their workforce.
The state plans to hire a new $200 million workforce training and development center.
It’s also looking to expand its training programs for employees.
Marylands Office of Economic Development also announced plans to add more than 4,000 positions to its workforce, including more than 300 positions to help businesses create jobs.
