The WorkPlace

Platform to Employment (P2E) is a nationally recognized solution, helping the long-term unemployed get back to work. For employers, P2E gives businesses a risk-free opportunity to evaluate and consider hiring participants during a trial work experience.

The foundation of P2E is a preparatory program for job seekers which includes skills assessments, career readiness workshops, employee assistance programs and more. Career coaches work with participants to leverage their professional experience and to develop effective job search strategies. Upon completion, P2E helps participants find open positions at local companies and offers a trial work experience.

The trial work experience becomes an extended interview where there is no risk to the employer and participants are given an opportunity to demonstrate they can do the job. The expectation is that if the company is satisfied with the performance of the candidate, a full-time job will ensue.
