Make Work Pay: Employer Partnerships Put People to Work

Commitment by

REDF

In 2015, REDF and its partners committed to employ 1,000 individuals, such as ex-offenders, at-risk youth, and individuals with disabilities, who face significant barriers to employment in social enterprises that provide transitional jobs and skill building. REDF will provide financial support to the social enterprises in order to scale up their training and support programs, while also advising mainstream employers on how to source procurement and employee talent from the enterprises, connecting mainstream employers with a pipeline of well-prepared employees by taking a demand-driven approach that ensures programs are tailored to employer preferences. At the same time, REDF and its partners will provide resources for helping employees succeed, such as job readiness skills, career counseling, and access to social supports, which will continue even after the employee has left the social enterprise.
