Thursday, January 5, 2017

The Greater Detroit ERN demonstrates the positive effects of Employer Resource Networks.

What Are ERNs?

Employer Resource Networks ® are private-public consortia whose purpose is improved workforce retention through employee support and training.


The key ERN innovations are:

  • business engagement
  • cross-sector collaboration among employers
  • human services and educators
  • workplace-based employee success coaching (case management)
  • real-time referrals to community resources

ERN stakeholders include:

  • small to mid-sized companies
  • public human services and workforce development
  • private non-profits
  • community colleges and vocational training organizations
  • local, regional and national foundations and United Ways
Why ERNs?

ERNs improve communities in a variety of ways:

  • employers retain an engaged and skilled workforce
  • public agencies and nonprofits get better outcomes from programs that advance economic independence
  • community colleges add students and build closer ties to area businesses

ERNs are a value proposition to all stakeholders. Their outcomes include:

  • employee retention rates of 90-98%
  • contributing employer ROI of 175-330%
  • increased employee engagement
  • informal regional human resource networks
  • decreased employee reliance on public assistance
  • increased family financial stability
How Do We Do It?

ERN Programs help employees access social service and training programs that support employment.
 

ERNs partner with local government, non-profits and private employers to offer the best resources available
 

ERNs network with other Employer Resource Networks (ERNs) across the country who share best practices and ideas.


The Success Coach can confidentially help employees:

  • improve employment skills
  • overcome personal barriers
  • prepare for advancement opportunities

ERNs coordinate with community organizations to offer training opportunities such as:

  • Basic computer skills
  • Computer applications
  • Financial management and budgeting
  • Diversity education
  • Credit repair and foreclosure prevention
  • Affordable family nutrition
  • English as a second language (ESL)
  • Leadership and problem solving
  • Math proficiency
  • GED classes
  • Health and wellness
  • Free income tax preparation
