Working Bridges Lunch & Learn with Green Mountain United Way

  • Does your business struggle with employee retention, productivity, and advancement?
  • Is your HR team challenged by employees whose life issues impact their work-life? 
  • Does your HR team struggle to keep up with employees' changing needs?

If your answer to any of these questions is yes and your business has 25 or more employees, we invite you to join us to hear about how the innovative Working Bridges program and your local United Way can help you meet your business goals through employee support by bringing human service resources to the workplace. We welcome Human Resource professionals, managers, and directors to attend.

  • December 12, 2017, 12:00-1:30 pm at the NVDA Conference Room- 36 Eastern Ave, St Johnsbury, VT 05819 - Lunch & Learn and networking

  • December 14, 2017, 12:00-1:30 pm in Newport, VT (location TBD) for a Lunch & Learn and networking

This unique program has been available in Chittenden County for a decade and has been helping employers large and small to reduce turnover, decrease absenteeism, and increase productivity and now it is available to businesses in Caledonia, Orleans, Essex, Orange and Washington Counties. Discover how this low-cost, high-value program can help your business succeed like it is at Weidmann Electrical Technology, Northern Counties Health Care, and other organizations in the Northeast Kingdom.

We'll discuss how bringing existing community resources to employees can help them move from a crisis to a place of stability and increased productivity at work. We will demonstrate how the Income Advance Loans help employees avoid predatory lending and build credit, resulting in increased savings and assets. And we'll talk about how the four employee-facing program elements work to increase retention at your business. 

A light lunch will be served at both events. Please RSVP for the date and location of your choice. Space is limited. If you are unable to attend after you RSVP, please contact Carrie Stahler at Green Mountain United Way ([email protected]) to open your seat up for someone else. More than one person from each business is welcome to attend.

This program is made possible by a grant from the FINRA Investor Education Foundation through a partnership with the United Way Worldwide and is generously supported by NVDA and the Northen Border Regional Commission.
