Become a Star Employer

Miami Valley Works will partner with employers whose organizations regularly hire entry- to mid- level employees for positions that pay a fair wage and offer health benefits after 90 days. The employer partnership is a collaborative effort that provides a win-win situation for both our Star Employer and the Member. We currently work with over 80 Star Employers.

Our recruitment fee is $0. There are no contingency fees or hidden costs. We win when you hire our Members onto your team. Our work is funded from a variety of sources which including individual donors, foundations, and grants. Each of these donors wants to see our regional citizens become self-sufficient and successful. Our services are tailored to be so appealing that your organization comes back to hire Miami Valley Works Members again and again!

We lower sourcing costs for our Star Employers

We lower your employee turnover by understanding employee culture & hurdles

  • Target is ~70% retention rate with Miami Valley Works Members
  • Our Members voluntarily join and dedicate their time to our Job Readiness program. This helps them learn about employer expectations and how they can improve their on-the-job performance.

These active services continue for a minimum of their first year on the job.
