J.P. Morgan is supporting the non-profit employment agency Mozaïk RH, which specializes in finding work for people from minorities and low-income families in France.
The initiative has been funded as part of J.P. Morgan’s New Skills at Work program in Europe, a $30 million commitment over three years, which aims to boost job creation, expand labor market participation and develop skilled workforces.
The Mozaïk Foundation will enable the agency to ramp up operations across the country and provide more places on its training program. Mozaïk RH was set up in 2008 to make France's workforce more inclusive by providing job placements and training to young unemployed people from disadvantaged backgrounds and giving large companies access to a more diverse talent pool. The non-profit ultimately aims to help 5,000 people find work with leading companies every year.
The recruitment agency plans to use funds from the firm’s Foundation to launch a pilot project called Club Partenaire with the aim of expanding its network of potential employers and ensuring the long-term viability of its programs.
Mozaïk RH has ties with more than 150 companies and has successfully placed more than 3,000 recruits in the last seven years.
