Ready To Work Business Collaborative

We are an employer-led coalition that enables employers to see the business value in hiring ready to work talent: long term unemployed, under-employed, veterans, people with disabilities and opportunity youth, an untapped labor pool that has been upskilled or re-skilled to meet the needs of today’s evolving economy.

Our Purpose

To help employers achieve their goals by enabling them to see the value in those who are ready to work and act upon this knowledge.

Our Vision

An economy in which employers see ready to work individuals as a key asset toward achieving their employment and performance goals.

Our Mission

To facilitate collaboration between employers, workforce intermediaries, and policy makers who are committed to helping individuals who are ready to work.

The RTWBC has created this Toolkit to help employers and HR executives better understand the problems and the solutions of the ready to work population including the long-term unemployed, the under-employed, veterans, people with disabilities and opportunity youth. It is loaded with many links to real-world solutions that other employers are using to address their skill's gap.
