We’ve all been there: You’ve just started a new job, the hot water tank goes and there’s no money for gas to get to work.
These – and many others like it – are the kinds of daily challenges that THRIVE coaches can help you navigate to ensure long-term success at work. THRIVE (Transformational Healthcare Readiness through Innovative Vocational Education) is a new program that will help you manage and overcome work and home stressors during your first year of employment.
Newly hired full- and part-time nursing assistants (NAs), certified nursing assistants (CNAs), home health aides (HHAs), and personal care aides (PCAs) are all enrolled in the program upon hiring.
THRIVE will provide life skills support, enhanced training, and a dedicated Workforce Coach to help you through every work/life challenge.
THRIVE is available locally at Catholic Health, provided in partnership with the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation, Cleveland Clinic, and Ascension Health Michigan.
