An Innovative Workplace Benefit

Supporting frontline workers' well-being, business productivity and community prosperity

 

The Sustainable Workforce Model

The Sustainable Workforce Model minimizes work disruptions, decreases absenteeism, improves workers’ financial stability, and ultimately increases employee retention and engagement by offering personalized, immediate, and human-to-human assistance when workers need it most.  

The Model is made available to employers through our national network of nonprofit partners in a fee-for-service arrangement.  The Model's services become part of an employer's benefits package.

How does it work? 

Resource navigators with specialized training in financial planning and coaching are at the heart of the Model.  These resource navigation experts:

  • Offer one-on-one, confidential assistance to all employees of member companies with a focus on frontline and lower-wage employees.
  • Connect employees with individualized services and community resources to overcome work and life issues that prevent them from holding and keeping jobs.
  • Meet employees where they are, to include scheduled worksite visits for open office hours
  • Assist employees with customized planning for work and life stability by connecting them to resources for housing, transportation, food assistance, and child care, as well as career, and financial coaching.
  • Connect employees to mental and behavioral health resources and legal assistance; work in partnership with an employer's EAP and workplace benefits when available.

The WorkLab Model is made available to employers through our national network of nonprofit partners in a fee-for-service arrangement.  Please contact us to learn more about the Model's availability in your community.
