Employer Resource Networks® Offer Valuable Help to Workers

Gene Mitchell, Leading Age Magazine

Employer Resource Networks® (ERNs) as a useful model to help workers address personal and career challenges. James Vander Hulst, Chief Disruptive Officer for ERN USA, outlines how ERNs are bridging gaps for all types of workers including the lowest wage workers, the ALICE population and executive managers. “At best, these pressures create stress and reduce the productivity of the worker, and it can also affect their health. At worst, these issues, sometimes basic needs, can cause absenteeism and loss of their job. With the cost of turnover and low availability of workers, Employer Resource Networks can help improve employees’ lives and increase retention.”
