“We are thrilled to be recognized by Emerge Education alongside this list of innovative workforce development companies,” said Brent Pearson, founder and CEO of Enboarder. “The skills gap and employee engagement continue to be a challenge for companies also navigating economic uncertainty and a labor shortage. Enboarder helps foster human connection and belonging between co-workers and across teams that’s critical for productivity and retention.”
“There’s this big, black box when companies spend time and energy to hire, and then as many as 50% of those new hires don’t show up for work on day 1,” said Amanda Nolen, LP and venture partner at Emerge Education. “So what can we do to ensure we meet the needs of those individuals – keep them engaged, excited, and learning before they enter the work location? There are huge opportunities there.”
