Congratulations to Green Mountain United Way on its recent award of $20,000 by The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). The grant will be used to expand Working Bridges in the Central Vermont and Northeast Kingdom regions. Working Bridges fosters the shared understanding that barriers such as childcare, reliable transportation and acute need for emergency financial assistance get in the way of continuous employment and derail good employees.
Working Bridges is an Employer Collaborative concept: a network of cross-sector employers work together to effectively develop and test innovative HR practices using the workplace as a platform for services designated to help workers minimize work disruptions, decrease absenteeism, improve financial stability and ultimately increase retention and advancement. Working Bridges provides Education and Training based in the Bridges Out of Poverty curriculum, an Employer Workgroup, Resource Coordinators who provide on-site resource assistance to employees, Income Advance Loans to employees, Mobile Volunteer Tax Preparation Program, and on-site financial literacy classes.
