SWD has job development professionals, who apply a holistic approach to helping the mission population to find work, with in-depth solicitations of their client's age, lifestyle, career goals, and employment approach.
Our Motto is Trust
Trust is about investing in the inherent goodness of man of having faith, integrity, and loyalty. It is the nobility of character. As the quote by Stephen M.R. Covey describes is, “The ability to establish, grow, extend, and restore trust is the key professional and personal competency of our time.”
Our vision of "where opportunity meets potential" is about finding talent for the employers and creating a pool of skilled and successful workforce from the burgeoning, stagnated, overlooked populations. We Find Them. Train Them. Employ Them.
Strategic Workforce Development Inc. was established in August 2018 and is one of Kansas City’s fastest-growing nonprofit workforce development organizations. Our team of highly motivated, seasoned professionals are ready to expeditiously “fast track”, manage and exceed standards. Our programming responsibly addresses systemic, long term inequity, and provides a bridge to diversity and economic growth in the Kansas City area.
Barriers and expenses
The team at SWD comes from a diverse group of Kansas citians, of different backgrounds, race and ethnicities. As a policy, we do not discriminate people based on different religion, genders, ethnicities, disabilities and sexual orientations. We have a fair and equal representation of demographics in our team and the people we serve.
Whether we call it soft skills or rather Social Survival Skills. We offer in-depth and 30 hours of intense seminars based on career development, emotional quotient and social navigation skills.
Throughout these classes we have Employers come in and give our students 'tips and job leads'. We also have luncheon classes, where we feed the students, all the while they are being coached on job retention and professional ethics and expectations.
SWD is associated with Builders Association, Carpenters Union, Painters Union, Non Union Contractors and Minority contractors to rebuild a trained workforce, to help train and employ our target beneficiaries with opportunities in the construction industries.
Another aspect of SWD is as a recruiter. We reach out to people, train them and make sure they are employed. Everyone is welcome to call us, set an appointment online and email us. We have around a 100 employers in our list that we help get them vetted candidates. Our vision "Where Opportunity Meets Potential" is verily what we do - find those gems in the realm of employment. Our Job is to be that resource for those who do not know how to navigate the world of employment and career development.
Help us by supporting our Social Survival Skill classes. These are soft-skill classes we provide to help returned citizens navigate the cesspool of corporate jobs, workforce trends, and social barriers. We provide week-long in-depth seminars, trying to help our mission people break their traditional and nontraditional barriers.
