Our Story

Working Fields was founded on the belief that individuals who have made mistakes in their lives, have accepted responsibility and have acted to improve their lives, deserve a second chance.  A second chance includes a second chance at employment, to return to the workforce, and to build a career.

The overall mission of Working Fields is to provide a model to individuals who are beginning their journey of recovery and are having trouble finding a job.  At the same time, Working Fields provides a model for Companies that would like to be part of the solution and hire second chance employees with the knowledge that a system is in place.

Our founder, Mickey Wiles is a person in long term recovery that has been given a second chance after his own struggles in life.  With that second chance Mickey, has worked as a director of a recovery center, learning the skills to work with those in early recovery and Mickey worked in a Company that developed an effective model for hiring second chance employees.  Combining these experiences with over 30 years of business leadership experience, the founding of Working Fields was a natural next step.
