Charlotte Works was selected as the backbone organization for the Charlotte region's Hope Street Group’s (HSG) Health Career Pathways Network
(HCPN). It is a nationwide program designed to strengthen the healthcare workforce by taking a competency-based approach to sourcing, hiring and advancing talent. Atrium Health set the goal of hiring at least one candidate through this new process by the end of 2017. With the help of Charlotte Works, they succeeded in hiring four candidates, each referred by a different community partner, providing early evidence of the effectiveness of an aligned approach.
