What is our Employer Partnership Program?
This Employer Partnership Program (EPP) is a hiring partnership between Women of the World and employers to assist forcibly displaced women with an efficient pathway to safe, secure and high-paying jobs with benefits and opportunities for upward mobility. The EPP builds on our mission to empower women from all nations to achieve economic success.
Employment is one of the biggest steps towards self-reliance. However, there are many challenging aspects for our clients as they seek employment - language barriers, cultural differences, and technological hurdle. Through the EPP, we assist everyone through the entire hiring process, free of charge for both parties, making it more efficient and effective for both our ladies and for the employers.
why hire our clients?
On average, 1 WoW client provides for 4 individuals. This means that by providing employment, you are taking part in one of the most impactful steps toward self-sufficiency for some of our community's most vulnerable.
The backgrounds of our women speak for their adaptability & resilience. Many of them are quick to learn & innovative in the workplace - possessing unique, transferrable skills and contributing to a diverse workforce. They are survivors who come to WoW highly motivated and grateful for the opportunity of a bright future in the U.S.
What are the benefits of a partnership?
Applicants are pre-screened for qualifications and motivations, ensuring they are accountable & ready to work for a sustained period of time. WoW can also assist with necessary documentation and orientation procedures.
Because English is a barrier and the application process is increasingly digital, newcomers to the US find it difficult to make an initial introduction and understand the parameters of onboarding and position descriptions. WoW acts as a bridge between amazing women and businesses looking for employees to arrange application materials, interviews, and new hire paperwork.
Individual job-readiness training can be provided along with assistance communicating needs or navigating conflicts, should they arise.
Providing employment to certain WoW clients may qualify you for Work Opportunity Tax Credits (WOTC).
Partners are recognized on media outlets, at regular conferences, speaking events, & press releases.
