If your company is striving to make the world a better place, a strong team is a must. Your staff should be composed of talented, forward-thinking individuals who place their values above profit.
But many forward-thinking organizations struggle to locate candidates whose missions and values are a match. Where can these types of organizations find candidates who hold the same world-changing aspirations, while also the skills to get the job done?
In the current job climate, many employees are seeking positions to make ends meet, rather than to make a difference. ReWork, a startup based in Boulder, has just what forward-thinking companies need in terms of sourcing exceptional hires. ReWork’s world-changing mission is to help individuals find work they love with companies who are making a positive social and/or environmental impact.
Rework was founded by three individuals who were all seeking meaningful work and a chance to make a difference. Their love for what they do now benefits a variety of sectors, businesses, and individuals. They’ve created an innovative platform and service for both organizations and job seekers. ReWork connects companies with candidates, all while saving organizational time, resources, and the risk of culture mismatches.
When organizations come to ReWork, they’re screened and vetted to better understand their company culture and the skills needed to find the right hire. Organizations using ReWork have access to a talent pool of individuals with outstanding accomplishments, expertise, and trustworthy referrals. They also receive speedy, handpicked matches for job openings, along with hiring support and talent insights, sourced directly from ReWork’s talent pool. Once a match is made, companies pay a percentage of the first year salary for the match. ReWork currently works with a variety of companies across sectors, including higher education institutions, fellowship programs, GirlTank, iDE, and Google.
So, who makes up the ReWork talent pool? These potential candidates have one thing in common: they’re committed to making a positive impact through their career. They come from a variety of different backgrounds, and many have attended prestigious universities, worked at top companies and nonprofits, and even started their own business ventures.
These socially responsible job seekers come to ReWork to gain access to paid opportunities with impact-driven organizations, but ReWork provides them with much more. Candidates are given an “in” with hiring managers, access to a career-supportive community of like-minded people, and even access to regional events for building professional relationships.
ReWork firmly believes that employees who feel fulfilled at work make for a better company. If your organization has an impact-driven initiative and is seeking extraordinary employees — ReWork is the tool for you. Gain more information on ReWork here.
