Nonprofits are having a hard time recruiting and retaining employees in this tight job market. When nonprofits are short staffed, it’s the clients in need of services who suffer. That’s why GL Homes and the 211 Helpline Palm Beach Treasure Coast teamed up to create the 211 Employee Rewards Program.
GL Homes donated $12,000 to 211 Helpline Palm Beach/Treasure Coast to create a year-long rewards and incentive program to boost morale and to applaud the excellent work the 211 team provides 24/7 to the community.
Throughout the year, 211 employees will receive gift cards to gas stations and grocery stores along with team building and stress relief seminars and activities. In addition, GL Homes purchased additional gasoline gift cards for all 87 employees and provided lunch from Joshua’s Catering to kickstart the rewards program.
211 is a community helpline and crisis hotline that provides suicide prevention, crisis intervention, information, assessment and referral to community services for people of all ages. 211 Palm Beach/Treasure Coast serves Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee Counties.
