Business Solutions

Are you looking for employees who are responsible, motivated, trained, and ready to work? North Lawndale Employment Network’s Business Solutions Department can help! Graduates of our award-winning job training programs are prepared to do the job right and bring savings to your business. We know first-hand that our graduates are top-quality employees – more than 20% of our full-time staff members are U-Turn Permitted graduates. But don’t take our word for it – hear it from one of our hiring partners, Forrest Claypool, former President of the Chicago Transit Authority.

NLEN has been proudly serving the workforce development needs of local employers for more than 12 years. The Business Solutions Department is your single point-of-contact to the North Lawndale Employment Network. We are here to support your recruitment, screening and hiring needs as well as provide constructive performance feedback to our clients while they are working for you. We have a pool of eager, job ready men and women who  are ready to start contributing to your enterprise.

We are very pleased at your interest in launching an employment partnership with us. NLEN can help improve your worker experience, reduce turnover and connect you with capable and quality job seekers. We’ll also help you access the wide range of hiring incentives that best suit your business, such as the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (which ranges from $1,400 to $9,000 per year).

The mission statement of the Business Solutions Department is to cultivate and nurture the employer partners of the North Lawndale Employment Network, by seeking, connecting and providing businesses with customized hiring solutions to meet their workforce and social responsibility needs by providing HR resources and procuring employment opportunities for returning citizens and other qualified residents.
