Nevada business owners who voluntarily Take The Pledge and reach out to the unemployed community will receive free exposure in downloadable reports and possible future online features at Networkplace.biz. Networkplace believes business owners deserve credit when taking the moral high ground. The Nevada campaign ends on February 29, after which a free and more comprehensive report will become available.
Business owners make many positive choices that impact lives within the community, many of which go unnoticed. Networkplace designed their Take The Pledge campaign to be a choice seen by even the most vulnerable in society. It is a pledge to their community that also has intrinsic benefits. Creating this type of positive P.R. typically takes time and money, commodities often in short supply to small business owners.
The unemployment rate, according to Gallup, has increased to 9.0% in mid-February. As a hot national issue, unemployment doesn’t appear to be fading away anytime soon. Businesses can use this opportunity to take a leadership role in the community.
The pledge simply states that a business will look at an individual’s merits, regardless of current employment status. Networkplace hopes the pledge may rebuild trust in communities after some companies have publicly stated no interest in the unemployed. Business owners can visit Networkplace.biz to Take The Pledge.
Nevada unemployment tops the country for any state, but the issue doesn’t stop there. An emphasis will be placed next in California and then on to other high unemployment states. While local campaigns take place, any employer in the country may go ahead and take the pledge. “The intent of the campaign is not to ask anyone to wait their turn, however, unemployment is a local issue.” Says Paul Wooderson, owner. “In order to build community businesses and any applicant pool need to engage in conversation. A geographic focus in the pledge is simply an attempt to foster communication and conversation within those communities.”
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.
