We challenge conventions, and redefine the recruitment process and environment, boldly opening up the industry so that an untapped talent pool from the social and geographic periphery – mainly the Arab, Druze, Bedouin, and Haredi communities – can both contribute and enjoy its benefits.
Setting our sights on true transformation, not just checking off a social responsibility clause, we are also influencing legislation, raising funds, and shifting the industry’s landscape, to make room for the most overlooked and underserved members of society.
Through our programs, we are proud to have recruited, trained, and placed hundreds of candidates with top-tier employers, boasting a 92% placement success rate. We have successfully established employment tech-hubs in Daliat-El-Carmel and the village of Zarzir, and the first innovation and employment center in the Arab city of Sakhnin. These tech hubs and innovation center promote local entrepreneurship and facilitate the cultural requirements of the communities they serve.
