The consulting team conducted member interviews, surveys, and focus groups across all locations to collect data that was used to analyze workforce needs. In addition, team members examined each community in-depth, identifying relevant community resources and challenges. In a mapping exercize, the team matched member needs and challenges to the available resources identified for each location.
In their report, the consulting team outlined those factors having the most impact on the worker experience. The report also identified challenges specific to workplace locations. The consultants recommended a number of initiatives including developing partnerships with local resources, creating customized trainings and resources addressing specific challenges, and adapting wellbeing resources to better meet member needs.
