Empower Work Retiree Peer Counselor: Make a real difference for people in tough work situations

Save to Favorites

Empower Work

Empower Work is on a mission to create healthy work spaces 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.

Are you retired, and want to use your professional experience to help others?

Volunteers in the retirement phase of life are a vital part of Empower Work. You have a wealth of skills and experience accrued over your professional career. As a peer counselor, you can support people from across the country who are grappling with tough work moments. Peer counselors field text or web chats from anywhere: your couch, dining table, or any space you feel comfortable and have secure internet.

Each volunteer commits at least 2 hours a week for 6 months. We provide robust training that improves your professional skills in active listening, management, and workplace dynamics. And we’re building a supportive network for volunteers to connect with one another.

Mission Statement

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.

Description

Empower Work started in 2017 with the question, "why wasn't there an accessible resource for tough work questions?"

What if every person could get help when they experienced a microaggression or feared being fired or had exciting job offers to choose from but couldn't make a decision? How would that change someone's 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.
