Employers benefit from having a more stabilized workforce which will reduce job turnover and increase employee retention, engagement, and productivity. When people have too many personal challenges and crises to deal with in their lives, they simply cannot be effective employees. The Associate Support Network will preempt these issues before they become so big that they lead to your associates being terminated or quitting their assignments.
Our community as a whole also benefits when the workforce is stable and individuals are contributing members of society.
We’ve heard about so many situations: A person can’t get transportation to work, so fails to show up. A person is struggling with a housing problem, finances, or overdue bills, so isn’t fully present at work. And so on.
These are problems that directly impact you and your bottom line as an employer. As a result, we aim to use the Associate Support Network to address these issues before they become crises and before they lead to turnover.
ASO workers receive supports – case management, child care, transportation, coaching – to keep them working.
Regular staffing agencies will only send you associates to work. However, we realized that it’s not what happens at work that makes a great employee, it’s everything that goes on in his/her personal life that determines how productive (s)he will be at the workplace. Therefore, the best way to improve the quality of the Temp2Higher workforce is to provide associates with supportive services that resolve issues in their personal lives.
We don’t just look at the associate, we look at the entire human being.
