Employee-centric program funding educational projects in local community classrooms
WorkReduce Inc, a data-driven platform for staffing specialist media talent, has partnered with education nonprofit Donors Choose to launch a philanthropic program, WorkReduce Gives Back. The program will help educate the next generation of Americans by providing financial support to exceptional teachers and teaching projects.
“At WorkReduce, we believe that the value of education cannot be overstated,” said WorkReduce CEO Brian Dolan. “WorkReduce Gives Back aligns with our commitment to training and education as well as to our employees, more than half of whom are working parents.”
An employee-centric program, WorkReduce Gives Back enables WorkReduce employees to select the projects they want the company to fund. WorkReduce Gives Back donates a portion of every client’s billings to fund these projects advocated by DonorsChoose.org.
Started by a history teacher, Donors Choose aims to enable crowd funded support of classrooms, making it easier for the public to help teachers provide the tools they need to make education attainable and valuable throughout the United States.

The launch of WorkReduce Gives Back follows a pilot in late 2020 where the team was able to make a positive impact by funding seven educational projects for teachers across the country. The positive response from customers, employees and recipients encouraged the WorkReduce team to think bigger and find ways to give more, and give it more regularly.
WorkReduce believes that exceptional talent stems from education and has always dedicated initiatives to cultivating education through its in-house WorkSkills training, a program dedicated to continued education, training and upskilling employees. Taking its commitment to education out to the community was a natural extension of the company’s brand values.
