This case is part of a four-case series integrated through The Empowerment Plan (TEP), a Detroit-based nonprofit that has worked to break the cycle of homelessness through education, employment and placement. Founded in 2012 by Veronika Scott, TEP recruited workers through homeless shelters and provided them with education, training and full-time employment in making sleeping bags. The specially designed coats were distributed free of charge to the homeless population. Case A presents basic information about starting TEP, how employees were hired and trained, employee roles on the production line, and how employees were promoted, managed, and motivated. The case also introduces the concept of the TEP Scholarship / Internship Program and is suitable for a didactic unit that focuses on job design and job design.
