Fortifying communities with sustainable jobs.
Bpeace fills the skills-gap with business volunteers.
For El Salvador, Bpeace functions as a global talent clearinghouse. Bpeace identifies Salvadoran businesses with strong growth and job creation potential. We call them Fast Runners and have a bias for women-led and family-owned businesses.
After listening to how the Fast Runners define their growth vision, Bpeace recruits industry-specific and functional volunteer business experts and shapes them into virtual consulting teams. There is an average of four-five experts on each team.
This link-up among Salvadoran entrepreneurs and their international advisers, increases capacity in a respectful manner by tapping into the natural entrepreneurial spirit of Salvadorans.
The Bpeace model provides Salvadoran businesses with access to experts through in-country consulting; virtual consulting via phone and email; visiting international experts; and Road Trips to meet with U.S. Host Companies.
The inputs are highly customized, and the outcomes specific and measurable.
Receiving advisory by phone from U.S. experts, a Salvadoran call center is working on its efficiency and employee retention and is now evaluating a plan to incorporate a second work shift and hire more supervisors to lead smaller agent teams.
Shoe experts Heather Williams and Sue Chang traveled from Chicago and New York to work with a Salvadoran shoe manufacturer. They provided expert advice in production, sales and marketing improvements.
Bpeace is actively recruiting additional Fast Runner Salvadoran businesses and welcomes recommendations.
