Social Finance has over a decade of experience in developing social impact programs and impact-first investments. We use this experience to help corporations design cross-sector partnerships to solve their business and talent needs, build innovative impact investment portfolios, act on their DEI commitments, and more. We help employers attract and retain talent through: 

  • Research: Help create the business case for a corporate social impact and talent finance strategy through our data-driven, impact-first approach.
  • Design: Design an outcomes-based financing arrangement to address your unique talent needs while driving positive social outcomes.
  • Investing: Invest in our existing impact investments portfolio to help improve workforce diversity and allocate limited HR/CSR dollars in a more sustainable and scalable way.
  • Hiring: Hire graduates from existing and new Career Impact Bonds to fill talent shortages and reduce turnover costs in industries like health care, IT, and skilled trades. Partially or fully offset worker payments based on time-based milestones to improve employee retention.
