Michiana Bridges: An Employer Resource Network

Michiana Bridges provides workplace solutions for under-resourced workers. The Employer Resource Network (ERN) is the perfect solution for employer and employee alike. Why?

Because ERN’s are a triple win: a more stable employee reduces costs to the community and the employer.

What is an ERN?

An ERN is a collaboration and partnership with local employers seeking to increase retention in their entry-level workforce, while also providing assistance to under-resourced employees who may need to solve non-workplace problems which impact their attendance and productivity at work. A key resource in helping individuals transition out of poverty is employment. However, keeping a job is often much more difficult than finding a job because for under-resourced persons, small problems often escalate to into lost work time and eventually lost work. An ERN not only helps an employer’s employees build stability, but is also helps the employer reduce turnover.

There are many additional benefits to being a part of the Michiana Bridges’ Employer Resource Network. For more benefits or to learn more about Michiana Bridges ERN and how you can create a partnership with our network, contact us!
