As an HR professional with competing priorities and an already full plate, you don’t always have the time and resources to ensure your workforce is thriving. Add in the high cost of housing and lack of affordable childcare options, your frontline workers may need additional support so they can show up and be engaged while at work.
By making investments in your workforce through programs like WorkLife Partnership, you can help your employees overcome what’s keeping them from being productive on the job. From helping your staff navigate Colorado’s expensive housing market, to securing affordable and reliable childcare and avoiding predatory pay day loans, WorkLife Partnership is positioned to work directly with your employees who need additional support so they can succeed at both home and work.
“We partnered with Worklife in 2017 and 2018 to deliver upskilling and mentoring services to individuals who wanted to enter college and become CNAs. Many of those individuals had no secondary education experience and mastering the eligibility requirements of enrollment was daunting. They were intimidated and some wanted to turn and run away. Fortunately, our Upskill Coach, walked with them. She cajoled, encouraged, directed, and guided students through enrollment, classwork, graduation, and certification. Without that personal relationship and subject matter expertise, fewer individuals would have successfully passed the course, and been available for employment at CLC.”
– Jan Roth, Executive Director of HR
“WorkLife Partnership is truthfully that—a partnership. They have the same goals and objectives as employers to keep employees’ wellness in mind as we all navigate how to balance our work life and personal life. As I have worked with WorkLife, the conversations always surround how we, as the employer, and WorkLife can provide the best assistance to our employees together in whatever form that may take. WorkLife really takes our employees’ needs to heart and provides excellent options for assistance … When looking at our company’s statistics for services they have provided, it’s staggering, and the amount of support provided is more than just monetary numbers. The intangible support our employees feel is far more valuable … it is incomparable.”
– Tara Seyffert, HR Specialist
“WorkLife is a great resource that offers assistance and support to overcome many of the obstacles our employees may be facing. WorkLife has various connections throughout the community to offer individualized support to put our employees on the path to success. At first, we thought our employees might be reluctant to discuss personal matters with someone they did not have a familiar relationship with. But, as more employees meet with the WorkLife navigator, their trust level grows and now they are even referring their coworkers to the program. It is so nice to see our employees receive the individualized help and attention they need.”

There are so many resources available to employers and their workforce—countless programs, incentives, and economic development initiatives—it can be difficult to focus on the ones that will actually impact your workforce.
Colorado’s middle class is in distress according to a state specific study conducted by two University of Colorado Denver professors, Todd L. Ely, Ph.D., and Geoffrey Propheter, Ph.D. Their report, entitled “Colorado’s Middle Class Families: Characteristics and Cost Pressures,” reveals unsettling findings about […]
This was a title of a recent CNBC article. But, while the title itself might scream “clickbait,” the unfortunate reality is affordable childcare for many working Americans is more of a fantasy than an reality. In Colorado alone, more than 2.4 […]
