There is a growing sector of worker owned staffing agency cooperatives. For example, the Staffing Cooperative consists of two staffing agencies - the Core Staffing Cooperative and the Tribe.
The Core Staffing Cooperative consists of formerly incarcerated individuals. This is a group of people who typically have difficulty finding employment and when they do, it's often found through staffing agencies. The workers elect 7 of the 9 board of directors, with investors having the two remaining seats. So far, the recidivism rate of the workers stands at 0%, and the markup fees are lower than the industry average.
The Tribe is a digital on-demand staffing platform owned by the workers, specialising mostly in software development.
