CREATING A FUTURE WHERE BUSINESS OWNERS, WORKERS, AND THEIR COMMUNITIES GROW AND THRIVE TOGETHER

We equip small business owners with the leadership skills to create better jobs, for themselves and their workers. According to the Census Bureau, 98.1% of employer firms in the U.S. have fewer than 100 employees. With small businesses leading the good jobs movement, we have the opportunity to dramatically expand the middle class and drive shared prosperity.

A more equitable society requires a more equitable economy.

Work for Humanity wanted to understand why economic mobility had declined despite decades of investment in education and the largest economic expansion in history. Our research uncovered one of the biggest barriers to a more equitable economy is a lack of good-paying, desirable jobs. Even if we snapped our fingers and gave all 53 million low-wage workers in the U.S. a college degree today, not much would change. Our report provides a framework for understanding why.

Bridging the gap between the life you want and the good job that makes it happen.

Our programs are built around one bold idea: people can do almost anything – given the right mindset, skillset, and working environment. Our Bounce Forward program helps small businesses around the country reimagine the employer / employee relationship and create a team full of leaders.

Helping small businesses thrive through disruption

Even prior to the pandemic, a survey found 72% of small business owners felt overwhelmed and believed better delegation and communication were key skills they needed to develop. With supply chain issues, inflation, and labor shortages, 1 out of every 2 small business owners are burned out and thinking about quitting. With your help, we are changing lives and livelihoods.
