SUSTAINABILITY MEETS

WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT

 

It’s rare when a startup can impact one market challenge successfully. And even rarer…two at once. Well, that’s just exactly what Kameale Terry and ChargerHelp! are doing. Kameale’s company is tackling a major pain point in electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure – repair and maintenance. At the same time, she’s committed to workforce development and economic mobility. ChargerHelp! is creating an entirely new career role – part technician, part electrician, part IT support. And she wants to prioritize training those from her own community.

Kameale has the energy, passion, and drive you just want to get behind. The company story is compelling and she’s pretty good at pitching it. So much so that she’s earned hundreds of thousands in grants and pitch competition wins. Now that’s a way to fund a startup! The journey that landed Kameale as a startup CEO is unique and fascinating.

Listen in to hear the story.

 

“…I am a native to Southcentral Los Angeles.

  • How the need to return home made her career flourish
  • How in 2 years at another startup, she went from customer service rep to leader

Co-Founder & Chief Workforce Off

Workforce Development is weaved into the fabric of our company.  One way any workforce is developed is through the creation of jobs. Another is through enhancing current skills, knowledge and duties resulting in higher pay. We collaborate with our local Workforce Centers and create partnerships with organizations to train and hire from our local communities. In this competitive climate, to attract the best and brightest to our team, we’ve implemented practices and a training curriculum that is designed to ensure all applicants have a fair opportunity to join our team. ChargerHelp! Is overcoming the skills gap and recruiting quality, underutilized, reliable, high performing professionals. Our rapid evolution due to our technology, customer needs, and changing demographics has heightened the demand for a skilled and developed workforce.
