News > The Dasher Team Member Prosperity & Success Model
Dasher’s workforce includes many low-wage, economically fragile people. Ten years ago, we concluded that paying higher wages and offering comprehensive benefits to low-wage, economically fragile employees did not measurably improve employee retention or drastically improve quality of life.
After searching in vain for a proven system that employers can use for helping low-wage, economically fragile workers to live happy, healthy lives, the Dasher management team developed its own Team Member Prosperity and Success Model, an innovative business process that portrays an end-to-end solution.
Dasher’s Team Member Prosperity and Success Model is a blueprint for providing individual and group support, leadership, personal development, and professional development specifically for low-wage, economically fragile workers. This model reduces turnover, increases productivity, and puts economically fragile workers on the path to economic stability.
We included every detail and tip for implementing the Team Member Prosperity & Success Model that we could think of in our book, The Talent Pool. We believe the time is ripe for this to become a movement in the business community to support low-wage, economically fragile workers to be successful in their lives and in their careers.
A movement happens when people gather around a single idea or call, and then do something about it. We invite everyone to join our movement to improve the lives of low-wage, economically fragile workers.
For employers, there is a clear economic benefit that comes from caring about the quality of life experienced by economically fragile workers. It comes from maximizing returns on employee recruitment, reducing the cost of employee turnover, and differentiating the business in the eyes of customers and prospects as both a socially responsible and an economically successful partner.
What we have sought to do with this blog, our videos and our book is describe our own path and the steps we have taken to help economically fragile people become economically stable. We view this as simply one path. We hope that many other successful approaches will emerge and that other models will be developed that create access to economic stability for everyone.
In our next blog entry, we will begin explain specific initiatives to “help” economically fragile people.
