York Solutions Introduces New Program: Barriers to Entry

September 13, 2016

New program supports individuals looking to re-enter the workforce

MINNEAPOLIS (September 13, 2016)– York Solutions, a national information technology consulting firm that provides clients with custom resource solutions to successfully complete IT projects, announced today their new service, the Barriers to Entry (B2E) program, which will focus on providing training and a career path in IT consulting to men and women looking to re-enter the workforce after taking time off.

It is estimated that there are millions of educated men and women struggling to re-enter the workforce after taking a break to be with their families or to serve our country. York is working to remove the barriers of re-entry and provide a foundation for success through training, professional development resources, and a career in IT consulting for program participants. York’s passion and dedication to giving back to the community is the driving force as they seek to empower women, veterans, and individuals from other under-represented demographics to be successful in returning and thriving in the workforce. 

Participants in the program will begin their IT consulting career with York Solutions by engaging in their comprehensive training program led by an executive-level IT professional, focused on developing participants’ project coordination and project management skills. Following this training, the B2E program will provide the on-ramp to a successful consulting career in IT for participants through entry-level contract positions with York throughout the Twin Cities.

“Our founder, Bill Carr, is a Vietnam veteran, along with a number of other team members who have either served in the military or previously taken a break from the corporate world to raise their children,” said Richard Walker, CEO at York Solutions. “We know, firsthand, how absolutely instrumental these individuals are to the success of our organization, and our goal for the Barriers to Entry program is to work toward closing the gap between those looking to re-enter the workforce and the companies who need skilled IT and project management consulting professionals.”

York has developed a holistic approach to provide program participants ambitious about returning to the workforce a career path in IT consulting and simultaneously filling a need within companies looking for skilled workers with diverse backgrounds. “We are grateful and excited to have the opportunity to build such a program to help the communities we serve in a new way,” Walker added.

    The Barriers to Entry Program is a very exciting concept. Having been in the IT world\workforce for almost 3 decades, having a recent gap, and now experiencing reentry challenges myself. I have no doubt that the program will be a huge success!! There are many of us out here that are still wanting to and willing to contribute our knowledge and experience to the workplace. Thank you for doing this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
