WorkSquare’s team launched the company in 2008 to create a path toward financial stability for South Florida’s low-wage workers. By combining temporary-to-permanent job placement with financial literacy training, WorkSquare empowers its workforce to leverage new jobs to grow income, save money, and start building assets. Meanwhile, WorkSquare is shaking up the way that workers and employers connect, making the low-wage job market more meritocratic, efficient and cost-effective for workers and employers.
Unlike traditional staffing agencies who apply prohibitive fees or waiting periods that impede employers from hiring on temporary employees, WorkSquare encourages its clients to hire on its employees at any time. This makes WorkSquare a crucial recruiting partner to its many clients in the hospitality, construction, light industrial, property management, and food service sectors. Moreover, WorkSquare provides job opportunities for hundreds of low-wage job-seekers each year, many of whom have struggled in the labor market due to poor work history, language skills, homelessness or other barriers to employment, and offers them a foot in the door to long-term job and financial stability.
