MEET THE FOUNDERS


CO-FOUNDERS
PAUL & YOM DOUGLAS

After more than a decade leading top recruiting firms, Paul and his wife, Iyomekha “Yom” Douglas, founded The JPI Group in 2015.

Today, it’s one of the most diverse workforce development and planning firms in the country.

The JPI Group provides strategic workforce planning on infrastructure, technology and energy efficiency projects that are focused on impacting local communities and their economy.

For three consecutive years, The JPI Group has received top awards, including the National Minority Supplier Diversity Council Supplier of the Year and Minority Business Advocate of the Year. Read more inside this press release.

The couple is proud to be an example of grit and commitment.

As immigrants, Paul and Yom were each raised by single mothers in disadvantaged communities. They quickly learned the power of employment and strong work ethic in changing the trajectory of one’s life.

But it would prove to be a career within the workforce planning industry that prompted their decision to establish a family-owned company. The pair was driven by a strong desire to create strategic job growth and a clear path to STEM careers ― within the same underserved communities that they were raised in years ago.

Since its founding, The JPI Group has placed thousands of diverse candidates into STEM roles nationwide.

In 2021, The JPI Group launched its cutting-edge customized tech platform, CareerEquity, to help match local and diverse talent to workforce development programs. Learn more here.
