How to Become a HIRE Employer Partner
At United Way of Dane County, we work solely with employers that value diversity and are committed to helping individuals succeed at their company.
Retention, culture, climate, good wages and benefits are important to HIRE. Because we want to make sure we are placing our participants in a job where they are valued and given opportunities to advance within the company. To make sure our partner employers are a good fit, we offer Implicit Bias, Cultural Competency, Mental Health First Aid and Trauma Informed Care training.
Additionally, we’re looking for partner employers who are willing to provide full-time, well-paying jobs (or those that pay at least $15/hour) so that our HIRE participants are truly empowered to find a path out of poverty.
