Partnerships are critical to the success of any business; integral to improvements in the economy; and instrumental in mobilizing communities to become more self-sufficient. There are many entities working in communities with the greatest needs; however, they often work in isolation with few results. Additionally, there is little continuity of support. The Digital Network Group (DNG) established a community stakeholder model to enhance collaboration among multiple community partners and minimize the fragmentation of services to the same population. In this current economy, partnership engagement and collaboration are cost-effective techniques that will ensure that community development has a long-lasting impact and can contribute to the growth of people resources in the community, which will have a greater impact on the future economy.
KP Scholars is more than just a provider of services; for many of our partners our strongest value proposition is the role we play as integrator and manager of the talent pipeline. The KP Community Stakeholder Model identifies the various actors that are essential for developing talent and the role each plays in the context of a talent supply chain. This demand-driven system ensures that our talent portfolios deliver to employers entry level talent that possess the required knowledge, skills and abilities in the most efficient and cost effective manner possible.
