The Challenge

Powering Movement

Powering Movement

Imagine being born in the middle of a corn maze.  For generations, you and your family have only ever seen tall, corn stalks all around you.  Inside the corn maze, you have your own culture, rules, language, and expectations.

Would you know how to get out?  If you got out, would you  know how to behave? What was expected, how to communicate, how to succeed?  

Without a path or guidance, survival instincts kick in and likely you find yourself back in the corn maze.  Each time, you get deeper and deeper into the maze and your chances of surviving become minimal and eventually you give up hope - for yourself and your family.  

Labor ready workforce solutions

Star Staff

Powering Movement

Star Staff

Today's labor market is getting tighter and tighter.  Needs are rising and resources are limited.  Investments are being made in short term, temporary solutions, rather than long term, sustainable approaches. 

Star Staff provides well rounded, low and semi-skilled labor trained, through our CornMaze program, in soft skills and trade skills to prepare them to be valued employees in various industries including construction, manufacturing, biosciences, health and beauty, logistics, warehousing and office administration. 

Making it clear

Our Strategy

We have developed the CornMaze program that optimizes existing social enterprises to create a qualified, prepared, and ready workforce in support of companies seeking out-of-the-box solutions to solving their labor shortage challenges.  

The end results are magnified but at minimum, uses an existing untapped natural resource of people, optimizes the resources of existing social enterprises for better ROI of public and private funding, reduces the high dependence on costly vis programs, keeps US investment in the US, creates career opportunities inside organizations to strengthen their foundations, and reduces dependency on social programs, improves quality of life for US citizens, and decreases potential victims and incarcerations.

We are developing a benefit corporation to support our mission but are open to alternative organizational structures that would allow us to implement the CornMaze program successfully on a local, state or national level.  These could include the creation of the CornMaze iconcept nside another company or non-profit, an appointed position within a government entity, foundation or corporation interested in developing a pilot program to create a proof of concept as a precursor to a larger roll out, or anything in between.  

Our goal is pure - simply to create a space for change that is measurable, life altering and multifaceted in it's reach.
