Empower Work is on a mission to create healthy workplaces where employees are valued, supported, and empowered.
We provide support for challenging work situations through trained peer counselors, accessible via web chat or text.
Our goal is to help people navigate tricky work questions or tough work problems and come to an outcome they feel comfortable with.
Empower Work’s focus is truly on people. As a mission-driven nonprofit, any revenue goes back to ensuring we remain free and accessible.
Our peer counseling model draws on best practices in coaching and strengths-based management focused on active listening, reflection, and positive inquiry. We also connect people to vetted information and resources if needed.
We do not provide advice, but rather support each person to think through the situation, provide larger context, and consider options for how to take action.
Our goal is that every person leaves feeling empowered with a next step that works for them.
Empower Work started in 2017 with the question, "how can we better support people at work?"
What if every person could get help when they experienced a micro-aggression or feared being fired or had exciting job offers to choose from but couldn't make a decision? How would that change someone's success in their role, career trajectory, or economic opportunity?
Empower Work is the first anonymous, immediate, third-party support that puts the employee first.
We envision a world where every person can have an accessible advocate to support their professional journey and equip them with the skills to successfully handle complex work challenges.
