Workforce & Economic Development

Maximus provides more than 27,000 jobs in the U.S. Through our citizen engagement – or call center – operations, we are the largest employer in many of the communities in which we operate. Maximus helps foster economic development in these communities by staffing all of our operations with local employees.

In addition, we maintain mutually beneficial relationships with businesses that bring demonstrated value to our customers and team. Through supplier arrangements and more formal mentor-protégé relationships, we invest and develop partnerships with companies that are certified as small business (SB), small disadvantaged business (SDB), women-owned small business (WOSB), veteran-owned small business (VOSB), service-disabled veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB), Alaska Native Corporation (ANC), and American Indian Tribes, among others.

Through our Center for Employee Development (CED), Skillsoft learning management system, and Maximus University (MAXU), we provide our employees with professional development opportunities through classroom training and live webinars; on-the-job guided learning, coaching, and mentoring; and contact with key leadership and subject matter experts.
