Baker Industries
Baker Industries - Workforce Development
The purpose of our 30-year old workforce development program is to instill a strong work ethic in our population of low-income vulnerable adults (people with disabilities, former substance abusers, ex-offenders, and homeless people) and, in doing so, build their self-esteem and work skills to the point where those who are able are ready to move into the real workforce.

Through such vehicles as our temporary employment program, we have been able to help an average of 67 individuals each year to do just that - 67 individuals who become one step closer to becoming independent and productive members of their communities. For those who are unable to be mainstreamed, we provide long-term employment at one of our two work sites (Malvern and Philadelphia). Each year, depending on the level of work that is outsourced to us, we touch between 200 and 400 individuals. Approximately 60-70% of our revenue comes from the work that we do for our customers - the rest we raise privately. We believe there is no other organization in this country that does what we do, i.e., blending these four, very different types of individuals in a work rehabilitation program, and doing it without any government support.

Baker Industries is one of the leading outsourcing and fulfillment companies in the Delaware Valley , and a unique workplace. Striving to set the standard for outsourcing, fulfillment and temporary staffing in the region, we offer a well-supervised, well-practiced and extremely work-ready staff capable of a meticulous and intelligent response to your needs. We can provide workers for companies that need temporary help for special on-site projects. Our workers know how to handle on-the-job problems, how to spot defects, and how to complete the work you need in the way you need it.

    Handi-Crafters
    Handi-Crafters - Vocational Evaluation
    The initial step for most individuals entering our programs is a vocational evaluation to determine your needs and our ability to meet them. The evaluation is scheduled after the intake interview and can last from 5 to 20 days. During this time we will assess your interests, aptitudes, achievement levels, work behaviors and skills. We will use standardized tests, work samples and production tasks in the workshop or participation on a community work crew. When the evaluation has been completed, we will meet with you and your team members to discuss the results. Our Vocational Evaluator will forward a written report to your referral source and anyone else authorized to receive a copy.

    • Google Resume Workshops: Every veteran that attends a workshop is paired with a Google employee for a one-on-one resume critique and coaching session, attends a panel discussion with Google veterans and hiring professionals, enjoys a free lunch, and goes on a tour of the Google office,
    • Kognito Virtual Training: Evidence-based role-playing training simulations to provide a highly-engaging and effective learning experience that will enhance users' ability to support veterans in achieving academic success.
