Business organizations use Getting Ahead to improve ROI by reducing turnover in entry-level positions. Entry-level workers learn how to navigate the middle-class world of work, build resources to stabilize their lives, and set goals that may include education and advancement in the workplace.

Getting Ahead for low-income employees is most effective when combined with Bridges Out of Poverty training for supervisors and managers, and a system of support to help low-income employees with issues that may impede attendance and job performance, such as transportation and childcare.
