Apr 13, 2021

Working Fields is thrilled to announce that it is expanding services to Windsor County, opening a Springfield office this month. Building on the strength and momentum of local partners, Working Fields will bring its unique supportive employment model to Springfield area employers.

“Now more than ever, employers need the innovative workforce solution that Working Fields offers, and Springfield’s strong network of local organizations made it a natural place for us to open our next office,” said Mickey Wiles, Founder and CEO.
