Social Purpose Business
A social purpose business with a focus on employment is a company that operates with the primary goal of creating meaningful job opportunities and promoting workforce development, while also addressing societal or environmental challenges. It places a strong emphasis on providing employment, training, and career advancement for individuals, particularly those facing barriers to entry in the job market, and aims to generate positive social impact through its employment practices.
