as a catalyst
EdFuel is a national talent management nonprofit that helps education organizations recruit and retain top talent at all levels.
Talent Management Support
EdFuel supports organizations to implement strong talent systems, including: competency mapping, recruitment, hiring, on-boarding, professional development, performance evaluation, and compensation and benefits.
Hidden in Plain Sight
60% of non-instructional education professionals at all levels of seniority report plans to leave their organization within the next three years. Read our report on the alarming attrition problem facing our sector.
Guidance on Virtual Sourcing and Hiring
Even before COVID-19, teacher recruitment was a daunting challenge for both schools seeking to hire diverse, high-quality teacher talent and for teachers looking to find the right position. In the current climate, schools are now needing to make all recruitment efforts virtual.

People are at the core of improving student outcomes.
Teachers and leaders are the most significant drivers of educational outcomes. If we are to realize our goal of educational equity for all students, schools must be able to recruit and retain top talent of all backgrounds and levels. Doing so requires strong talent management systems and leaders who deeply understand how to implement them.
We meet you where you are.
A single-site charter school and a district with 50,000 students have incredibly different talent needs. Whether you need help on early-stage recruitment systems, support on a multi-school talent strategy, or ideas for best-practice compensation systems, EdFuel has you covered. We take pride in our nimble nature and ability to design adaptive solutions tailored to meet partner needs.
We make best-practice practical.
We source and conduct research as the foundation of our work, yet balance it with a dose of practicality to meet real-world needs. We work hand-in-hand with leadership teams to understand the context of your organization and adapt best-practices to fit accordingly.
We ask difficult questions.
Because we believe diversity, equity and inclusion are talent imperatives, we will directly address areas where bias is or has the potential to be at play.
