We reduce risk.

Activate reduces hiring risk through careful selection, rigorous screening, demanding preparation, and 12 months of 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 their career. They’ve gone through another 15 hours of screening and preparation with us to ensure they are career-ready, motivated, and equipped with the right experience and talents. Our coaching activates our candidates into empowered goal-achievers who have learning mindsets and are focused on the long-term, in- and outside the workplace.

Result: Candidates who make it through our process won’t just stay, they’ll become next-level performers. Our business model depends on it.
