Our Workforce Coaches are trained professionals with years of experience helping individuals achieve economic freedom and self-sufficiency. They are employment coaches, financial coaches, life coaches.
Most importantly, they understand your workforce and the unique challenges frontline workers face every day, and they can complement the knowledge and skills of your managers, supervisors and human resources professionals.
Our coaches will be at your jobsite at least one day per week, and they will be available to meet one-on-one with any of your frontline workers. An employee may seek out the Workforce Coach, or they may be referred by a supervisor or HR staff.
Once a connection is made, the coach and employee will create a personalized development plan that can address a wide range of issues, such as:

As the employee’s life becomes more stable, the coach shifts to a proactive approach, focusing on the passions that inspire your employee and the skills he or she needs to pursue that inspiration. The goal is for each employee to not only survive within your workforce but thrive and advance, helping you maintain a pipeline of talent.
Whenever necessary, our coaches will connect your employees to additional services, either through the staff at Cincinnati Works or through partnerships with other non-profit organizations. Through it all, our coaches work in concert with your supervisors and HR staff, not in competition with them. We want all of your employees to feel valued and empowered on the job.
In that way, our coaches play a unique role as an advocate for both you and your employees, complementing what you already do to support them. We utilize community resources to leverage benefits such as:
- Paid time off / sick time off
- Leave of absence
- Employee assistance program
- Employee discounts
- Banking and loan programs
- Tuition reimbursement
- and more
