Employer Solutions Available from Goodwill
For employers, finding the best people to fit their workplace culture and contribute to their organizational success is both a challenge and an opportunity. Goodwill can help by connecting employers with qualified candidates, but unlike for-profit agencies, our services are mission-based. Our goal is to match our training and support programs to the real-world needs of employers.
Several factors make Goodwill’s Employer Engagement unique. For example, employers who use Goodwill can:
- Hire quickly from a large pool of pre-screened, qualified candidates;
- Meet multiple employment needs with just one call; AND
- Work consistently with a Goodwill Employer Engagement specialist who knows their company’s culture and environment.
Screened, Skilled, Reliable Employees
By hiring Goodwill graduates and participants, employers get job candidates hand-picked to meet their specific requirements who already have training experience. We offer transferable skills ranging from good communication to time management and workplace ethics, as well as job-specific skills in medical office administration, word processing, customer service, food service, and housekeeping. Goodwill also offers several unique employment options that can provide free or subsidized employment under a number of different funding programs. These include paid work experience for non-profit or governmental agencies, unpaid internships for area youth, and paid or unpaid externships for students of Goodwill training programs.
