Board Position for WorkLife Partnership (unpaid)
WorkLife Partnership, founded in 2009, is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to economic equity and thriving workplaces. WorkLife deploys its Resource Navigator services inside of business to minimize work disruptions, decrease absenteeism, improve workers’ financial stability, and ultimately increase employee retention and engagement by offering personalized, immediate 1:1 assistance when workers need it most. We are People Helping People solve real problems.
WorkLife relies on feedback from our employers to help drive strategy towards growth, sustainability, and community impact. We seek to attract an experienced, enterprise-level CHRO representative that will guide our strategy to align with employee benefits trends. The individual may have experience in benefits management, Total Rewards programs, health and well-being initiatives, workplace equity programming, or human capital analytics. Connection to national talent or well-being oriented organizations would bring a needed national-lens as WorkLife continues to grow across the U.S.
We know the world of work is changing. We are witnessing a shift in the way employers invest in their employees. Leaders are paying more attention to the health, well-being, mental health, and the whole-person as COVID and race surface massive inequities in our work-communities. The CHRO Board representation will guide Senior staff in marketing, communications, and service delivery strategies; as well as be a channel to receive industry information and test our assumptions.
