This strategy is good not only for workers and communities; it’s good for your company’s bottom line. Our guide shows you how to put these ideas into action.

The framework is based on traditional components of corporate talent strategy—like recruiting, retaining, rewarding, and advancing talent—and it expands on these strategies to include people-focused benefits. 

Each part of the framework (we call them “levers”) represents an area of the business that companies can focus on to achieve high-impact returns by changing or modifying current practices.

By implementing these levers—one, a few, or all six—you can begin your journey to becoming an Impact Employer and join the movement for greater opportunity, equity, and advancement in the workforce.
