Frontline workers often have limited resources and little to no safety net, and they are getting hit fastest and hardest by this crisis. WorkLife Partnership has 11 year’s experience directly supporting frontline workers. Connecting people to the resources that can help them is what we do best. We’re mobilizing our Resource Navigators’ deep expertise to help you respond to your employees’ most pressing questions. These are the top issues affecting your employees right now, and where they can go for help.
