Building A Stronger and More Dedicated Workforce

Your employees are your greatest asset. A small investment can save your business money. United Way is here to help.

Building Dedication
People want to work at companies that care about the local community and provide opportunities for employees to give back. The process will enhance morale.

Employee teams are stronger when they tackle tough community issues together –whether collectively raising money for youth or volunteering to teach financial planning to adults.

Crisis Support for Employees
Do you have supports in place for your employees when they experience a personal crisis?

We all like to think that nothing will happen to our employees, but each year thousands of hours of company time are wasted as dedicated staff take time to deal with a personal crisis. Knowing where to turn for help can reduce time missed from work.

United Way has many community services including:

  • 2-1-1 helpline- Whether it is finding child care or care for an elderly parent, 2-1-1 can connect your employees with valuable resources.
  • Financial education to help people stretch their assets and get out of debt. United Way’s Financial Education Program is free and can be offered right in your work place.
  • Familywize- A prescription discount card for your employee.

For more information about where to find help for employees call 2-1-1.
