Businesses can play a large role in energizing this untapped talent pool while reaping their own benefits, said Paul Wooderson, Owner.

"Unemployed Need Not Apply" has become too common in a time when unemployment remains stubbornly high. Networkplace.biz has launched a Take The Pledge campaign to instill goodwill between businesses and those hardest hit by unemployment. In Nevada, where state unemployment is highest, leaders can take a stand and show their commitment to community while refusing to limit their own recruitment efforts.

For those individuals experiencing job separation, it's particularly devastating to hear some businesses blindly count you out. The unemployment rate has gone down, in part, due to the number of these individuals who are no longer engaged in the process. A prolonged job search can be emotionally numbing and eventually unemployment benefits do expire.

Businesses can visit the company's website to Take The Pledge and publicly state their commitment to all in the community. The Nevada statewide campaign runs from February 14 - 29, 2012. The full report, making known all businesses who've taken the pledge, will be made available by mid-March. An announcement will be made on Networkplace.biz, future releases, and the company newsletter when the report is complete.    

In addition to free publicity, business owners can lead a movement in the country to reconnect skilled labor and help put our communities back to work.

"Businesses can play a large role in energizing this untapped talent pool while reaping their own benefits." Paul Wooderson, owner Networkplace, LLC shared. "Not only by opening the door to applicants, but by sharing information that may be crucial to a more actively participating workforce." He said openly sharing details of life inside a company may better prepare potential candidates for landing a position.

Formed in July 2011, Networkplace, LLC was founded with the mission of creating communities that work. Working communities not only represent high levels of sustainable employment, but they also characterize a "help your neighbor" commitment. A complement to traditional employment agencies, the company believes that community involvement in the current unemployment crisis may be the key to moving lives in a positive direction.
