Social Imprints is the only U.S. company
that provides higher-paying
to at-risk adults, including ex-offenders, recovering addicts, and persons who are economically and physically challenged.
While most "social enterprises" offer lower-paying blue-collar transitional jobs in production and assembly, Social Imprints opens outstanding white-collar opportunities to at-risk but high-functioning applicants in management, sales, marketing, accounting, and customer service.
Our workforce development model has been a tremendous success, both here at Social Imprints, as well as in our former business and in a company we helped start in England. That's because it produces maximum social benefits, while saving society millions of dollars in social services.
The new skills and confidence that our employees acquire allow them to go back to the community and mentor other aspiring individuals who want to get their lives back on track. Currently, 100% of our employees come from our social mission.
In addition to higher wages, Social Imprints offers every team member comprehensive support services (counseling, housing, legal, and education) to ensure their successful reintegration into society, and to prevent relapse.
After years of feeling powerless over their lives, the team members quickly begin to feel that they are vital to the success of the company. Every team member is eligible to receive an ownership stake in Social Imprints. The employees are involved in virtually all major organizational decisions, and are expected to offer regular suggestions for ways to strengthen our social mission and improve the bottom line. The Social Imprints empowerment model evolves over time, with experience and employee input.
