Goodwill Employees

Giving back to the community starts with our employees

Half of Goodwill employees report a disability or a disadvantaging condition. Goodwill seeks to support all employees and their families who are facing hardship. The Employee Support Services Program gives employees emergency assistance, resources, life-skills training, and/or financial assistance so that a change in condition does not mean loss of income.

Supportive services:
  • Emergency assistance fund
  • Financial management support
  • Employee-donated  vacation and sick hours bank
  • Mental health counseling
  • Legal counseling
  • Recovery assistance
  • Professional development classes
