Personal & Career Development

Did you know your company is missing out on an untapped workforce?

If you’re like most businesses, you’re always on the lookout for strong, reliable employees. This is how you grow and strengthen your business. Memphis has a massive untapped labor force, and HopeWorks can help connect you with your future employees. 

Don’t let outdated misconceptions hold you back. 

Many employers are hesitant to hire individuals with a criminal background or a resume with gaps. Even though their resume looks different than your traditional new hire, they are fully capable of meeting your business’s needs and being exceptional employees. They often need a little additional support while they find stability. 

This is where the Mid-South Employer Resource Network steps in. Our team of licensed counselors and social workers support partner companies and corporations, serving as the liaison between your human resources department and your new employees. They help proactively problem solve, securing reliable transportation, child care and health care for employees that will help reduce tardiness and workplace distractions. They can also provide personal and professional training to help resolve workplace conflicts and manage constructive criticism.

Right now, the Mid-South ERN program is small but growing. If you’re interested in learning more and participating in the future, connect with HopeWorks at (901) 272-3700.
