Hiring involves risk.
Activate decreases that risk through careful selection, rigorous screening, demanding preparation, and coaching after the hire. By the time we introduce our candidate to you, they’ve spent several weeks or months with one of our nonprofit partner programs, preparing for full-time work. They’ve gone through another 10 hours of screening and preparation with us to ensure they are career-ready, motivated, and equipped with the right experience and talents.
Result: Candidates who make it through our process will perform, at reduced risk to you. Our business model depends on it.
