About Us

Sustainable Workforce Model

WorkLife Partnership’s approach to economic vitality is called the Sustainable Workforce Model. It works. And we can prove it.

WorkLife Partnership is the first nonprofit organization in Colorado to deploy strategic talent engagement and retention programs that deliver proven ROI. Our Sustainable Workforce Model is expanding nationally because it works. This system engages human capital, increases economic opportunity for families through work, protects the bottom line, and builds more inclusive workplace cultures. WorkLab Innovations, a national network, is replicating the sustainable workforce model nationally.

About Our Work
The employees who WorkLife Navigators serve face numerous challenges with job retention, engagement, and staying productive on the job.

  • 4 out of every 10 clients needed help finding safe, affordable, and accessible childcare.
  • Virtually all clients needed help with their finances and budgeting.
  • Greater than 45% of our clients had trouble affording food, or didn’t know how they would feed their families.

Employees want to work and stay engaged, but life sometimes gets in the way. They need a hand today to be productive tomorrow.

Workforce Sustainability – A Proven Model
We connect employees in need with resources that help in the long-term. We give them options and education to help them better their lives today and in the future. In 2016, 90% of the employees we worked with kept their jobs.

WorkLab Innovations will lead employer engagement and investments to tap the hidden talent within the frontline of America’s workforce, and it will be an innovator for tools that help make Human Resources the go-to for talent strategy. National businesses will have access to the services across several states by the end of 2017.

Better work. Better life.

Unlike traditional employee assistance programs (EAPs), WorkLife Partnership provides personalized and localized assistance to low/middle-skilled employees who need new skills and/or resources to address challenges such as finances, health, child care or transportation — which endanger their ability to make a living, contribute to the economy and drive company productivity.
