NEW AVENUES INTO JOBS: Early Lessons from Nonprofit Temp Agencies and Employment Brokers
AbstractNew Avenues into Jobs: Early Lessons from Nonprofit Temp Agencies and Employment Brokers explores an economic development model in which job seekers are placed by employment brokers into non-permanent positions where they build work experience while receiving varying degrees of retention assistance and other kinds of post-placement support. The report documents the efforts of six nonprofit organizations to help disadvantaged workers gain access to employment through temporary work and surveys the lessons, positive and negative, learned from these local initiatives.
