About EdFuel


What We Do

We’re all about the people. EdFuel is a national nonprofit that helps education organizations recruit and retain top talent at all levels. We offer a range of programs and services from ready-to-use tools to full-scale talent management solutions for schools, networks, districts and education non-profits.

EdFuel supports single site schools, charter networks, traditional districts, and education nonprofits with talent management needs of all types. On the systematic side, we design the tools and processes that education organizations need to implement strong, equitable and inclusive talent management systems. Our work spans all aspects of the talent cycle and we have extensive experience in the following areas: competency mapping, recruitment, hiring, onboarding, professional development, performance evaluation, compensation and benefits, succession planning, and holistic organizational culture.

But we know that systems are only part of the solution. Much of the challenge is adaptive: the ability of organizational leaders to effectively implement talent management systems with consistency, fidelity, and in a way that preserves strong internal culture. EdFuel designs tailored training and support systems that build the capacity of the organization to sustain strong talent practices without us.

“EdFuel has been an important partner to Yu Ying. Over the past year, we’ve worked closely to enhance the school’s organizational capacity and develop strategies to retain our talented employees. Thank you, EdFuel!”

How We Operate

  • We meet you where you are

    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 have a bias toward action

    Because time is precious, we take an applied approach to design, valuing responsiveness and getting things done.

  • We offer accessible price points

    Because top talent shouldn’t be a luxury, we take a streamlined, affordable approach to delivering high-quality products.

  • 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.
