Better Work. Better Life.
WorkLife Partnership is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to creating socially sustainable communities and thriving workplaces in Colorado. Through partnerships with employers, WorkLife Partnership provides direct services and training to employees to help them overcome the barriers that keep them from getting to work, staying at work, and being productive at work.
While WorkLife’s services target employees at specific companies, in reality we serve another population as well: The parents, spouses, children, and other family members of each WorkLife client. Very often, a client’s main problem is their inability to care for family, especially children.
Financial stability is one of the most daunting hurdles for many WorkLife clients as they work towards achieving self-sufficiency. Roughly 80% of our clients tell Navigators that money problems are a main source of stress, or that they have problems building and sticking to a financial plan.
There have been so many studies conducted on the link between education and pay grade that this connection has become common knowledge: More schooling makes for a higher wage. In 2013, the average weekly income for an employee with a high school diploma was $651, while employees with a bachelor’s degree earned almost twice that at $1,108 per week. Having a GED added hundreds of dollars to weekly income as well, bumping it up from only $472.
We retain employees using community resources resulting in economic prosperity for businesses and workers and community. Read More >
