Through these state and federal programs – and the support of private funders and the Greater Twin Cities United Way – HIRED has consistently assisted people in our community who are striving to support themselves and their families. We have taken our services to correctional facilities, high schools, community centers and businesses. Today, HIRED assists nearly 9,000 individuals annually from sites throughout the Twin Cities.
HIRED is a leader in the use of technology to increase efficiency and to provide corporation-wide data that supports a culture of analysis. A forerunner of today’s focus on career pathways and sector initiatives, in 2004, HIRED, Hennepin Technical College and local manufacturing companies developed a demand-driven and employer-focused training program for the next generation of workers in the precision manufacturing industry. M-Powered has won numerous awards and has been a model for both domestic and overseas programs.
