Job Quality Initiative

JVS Boston and MassHire Downtown Boston (MHDB) (the career center that JVS operates) sit at the intersection of employers and jobseekers – helping employer partners attract and retain productive workforce so companies can flourish, while helping job seekers gain marketable skills and negotiate the best employment opportunities available.

In this turbulent labor market, low-wage workers are seeking opportunities that offer stability and economic growth for themselves and their families. Job Quality is taking center stage and JVS and MHDB is ready.

Since 2017, JVS has been developing the Job Quality Benchmarking Index – a survey and qualitative tool that generates reports demonstrating how their jobs stack up against competitors on job elements that matter most to job seekers: Wages, Benefits, Scheduling, Access to Career Ladders, and Supportive Environment.
