Changing the Current Workforce System
While most workforce development agencies employ a “supply-driven” approach and focus on reskilling applicants, Skills starts by going directly to the job source—employers— to understand their hiring needs, company culture, and long-term human resources goals. We fill available positions with unemployed and underemployed individuals, serving as a connection, coach, and advocate.
Skills' jobs-first model connects underserved job seekers with companies committed to hiring diverse, qualified talent. We act as the last mile for the unemployed but the first mile for businesses.
