The Vermont State Council

  • The SHRM Vermont State Council received a 2008 Pinnacle Award, sponsored by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and Automatic Data Processing (ADP) for its “Working Bridges Out of Poverty Project.” In conjunction with for-profit, nonprofit, and government agencies, the council delivered Working Bridges training to more than 250 human resources professionals and line managers on the workplace implications of economic diversity; implemented an emergency savings and loan program for employees of participating companies; housed worksite resource coordinators in companies to help employees find help with housing, child care, transportation, economic assistance, and other resources without having to leave work; and began discussions of how to encourage employees to use health and wellness strategies.
