WorkLife Partnership, founded in 2009, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to economic equity and thriving workplaces across the country. WorkLife deploys its Resource Navigator benefit inside of businesses to provide personalized, immediate, one-on-one assistance when workers need it most. WorkLife Navigators minimize work disruptions, decrease absenteeism, improve workers’ financial stability and ultimately increase employee retention and engagement. Currently, more than 65,000 employees across 36 employers are eligible to receive support from WorkLife, and 91 percent of those surveyed by WorkLife said that they felt good working for a company that offers this benefit. WorkLife is guided by its vision that prosperity is possible for everyone through work.
WorkLife Resource Navigators support employees one-on-one for as long as they need with issues that traditional benefits can’t meet like safe housing, affordable childcare, debt, and goal setting. They help employees come up with a plan, connect them to the right community resources and encourage their progress along the way. The Resource Navigator program has proven to minimize work disruptions, decrease absenteeism, improve workers’ financial stability and, ultimately increase employee retention and engagement.
WorkLife’s Health Benefits Navigator helps workers optimize their health insurance plans, navigate the healthcare system and manage costly medical bills so employees can live a healthier life. This service saved workers more than 150 hours of time last year that would have been spent trying to navigate the system on their own. By supporting workers in choosing and understanding their insurance plan, more employees take advantage of the company’s benefit offerings, fewer employees are distracted by the stress of medical bills and debt, and employees lower claims usage by making more informed choices.
Launched as a way to support workers for whom safe borrowing is usually unattainable, WorkLife Partnership’s Small Dollar Loans program provides employees in Colorado with safe and affordable loans so they can cover emergency expenses without relying on predatory lending or revolving lines of credit. In the last year, this program became a financial lifeline for employees impacted by COVID-19. Ninety-four percent of WorkLife borrowers said they’re in a better place financially after taking out the loan.
