Burlington Employment Agency
BEA was born in February of 2016 to help connect Vermont companies with quality and reliable workforce especially from among the New American population groups. Before BEA’s inception, there was a two-fold problem. While Vermont’s newer communities saw their lack of English-language proficiency and cultural backgrounds as retarding factors to succeed in a workplace, many of the Vermont businesses were reluctant to hire New Americans as they did not know what to expect from them. BEA was born to provide a support system to connect the two sides. The business model has worked out very well. BEA now sends approximately 100 people to work on any given day to about a dozen companies in four different counties of Vermont.
