PCC vets employment candidates who have been overlooked and underestimated. We find the very best, most reliable, trustworthy, and ambitious candidates, and present them to employers in the PCC Database. Find exceptional, prevetted candidates, contribute to equity through hiring, and elevate your diversity.
When you really invest yourself and your time in low-income communities, you will discover what I have known for a very long time: people from low-income communities are quite capable of working for an extended period of time. These folks aren’t lazy or unreliable, they just lack access to opportunity – they have very little social capital to help them ascend the economic ladder. Project Community Capital and critical thinking on topics of employment in low-income communities, our closed social capital networks, and our preconceived notions about people in less privileged, and farther removed social circles.
Employers can utilize PCC to fulfill their employment needs. We pre-vet candidates for reliability, trustworthiness, and ambition, and provide a list of read-to-work candidates.
Outreach starts with leveraging the existing social capital within a given community. We reach out to trusted community leaders as a bridge to connect with residents. Outreach meetings and pre-screening interviews are then held at a local community venue where residents have easy access.
The reason many of the candidates do not have jobs is because of lack of access. Even on government-funded projects that have hiring minimums, contractors claim they cannot find anyone reliable to work on their construction project, and they are given a pass. Meanwhile, individuals who are reliable, trustworthy, and ambitious, who can actually hold a job, don’t even know the job exists.
Employers looking to recruit unique, sharp candidates with RTA can start with PCC. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the workplace is vital–especially since the globe came to terms with the racial and societal implications of PWI's and the importance of diverse community. PCC's hiring and recruitment abilities can deliver a reliable, uniquely talented candidate from an underserved community who lacks access to employment, but has a passion for hard work.
Sub-contractors serve a core function as a user. Often, they suffer financial and reputational penalties by not meeting their socioeconomic goals. PCC can help alleviate this impact, making it easier to deliver their construction projects at a lower cost and without significant employee turnover.
