Economic Freedom Through
The Dignity Of Work
Activate Workforce Solutions serves best-in-class businesses while solving an endemic social problem: helping people move from poverty to economic self-sufficiency. By screening, matching, and supporting earnest candidates, our fee-for-service system successfully connects the right employers with the right people. Our system is working, and we are ending the cycle of poverty one career-path job at a time.
Jobs are the key to prosperity. Like many local companies, CoorsTek strives to find and retain qualified employees. Activate only endorses candidates with tremendous promise, then provides ongoing coaching and support with every placement. Our business model depends on the success of our placements—we are completely aligned with and accountable to our employers’ interest in developing high-value contributors to their organization. That’s prosperous for everyone.
We are obsessed with the question: How do we get more people off public assistance?
Almost all our candidates are on some form of assistance. Many have worked as temps. But that revolving door of sequential, low-wage jobs offers little advancement. In fact, many agencies are incentivized to keep labor temporary; once placements convert to permanent, they lose revenue. Activate is different. Our goal is a hopeful, vibrant future for both employees and employers. And we pride ourselves on bringing out the potential of people who are challenged with securing career-path employment.
When we do, everyone wins: our employers, our placements, our nonprofit partners, and our community.
