Attracting and retaining good workers has never been harder – that's why Job Skills, a community-based employment and training organization, began offering a defined benefit pension in 2022.
"This is our first time offering a retirement benefit, and [it] has delivered the stable, secure path that we wanted to be able to provide our staff," said Teresa Guillem, Special Projects Manager with Job Skills.
For Teresa, ensuring that her team members could rely on a secure retirement meant the organization would also be better equipped to deliver on its mission.
"We want to invest in our people," said Teresa. "One, because we want them to stay with us long term, and two, we know by investing in our staff we are also investing in our community."
