Our Values

Shared Ownership 

Being a cooperative, or a worker-owned organization, the nature of our business model creates a culture of ownership rooted in transparency, collaboration and trust. TBL is what you make it. We hope you’ll join us!  

Create Inclusion

As a DEI staffing agency, we don’t want to just place diverse talent, we want them to feel a sense of belonging once they arrive. We amplify workers, welcome all talent and listen to all feedback to collectively understand how to create cultures of inclusion. 

Grow Together

Our network isn’t just a talent pool, it is a place to grow and build real skills and a community of allies and mentors. Through continuous learning and community support, we achieve shared success.

A Big Thanks

Thank you to our current partners committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) and building a fair and effective workforce.
