For ESEs in Early Stages of Developing an Employee Success Benefits Program
REDF believes having a point of view of who is the population you seek for focus on hiring, what goals your ESE seeks to support your ESE in achieving, and how your ESE intends to support your participant workers in achieving these goals is foundational to an employee success program. In order to do this, it is important to have consensus within your ESE on what long and short term goals your ESE hopes participants workers hope to achieve. Once your ESE can identify those goals, it’s important to identify what are the barriers and challenges that your participant workers face that may prevent them from achieving those goals. Finally, identify what are the ESE benefits/activities your ESE can offer in-house or through partnerships that can support ESE participant workers in mitigating these barriers and ultimately achieving the goals identified.
