Getting Started Is Easy

With the groundwork laid—understanding the data, knowing who in your workplace is ALICE, and determining ways to support these workers—a plan can be developed and put into action. There are several steps you can take to get things started:

  • Get buy-in
    The first step is to get the organization’s leadership on board. Include managers and HR in the process of building support for ALICE, sharing their ideas and feedback.
  • Let the data show the urgency
    There is a wealth of ALICE data to support the need to make stabilizing your ALICE employees a company imperative. Visit United For ALICE to explore all the data, reports, maps and graphs.
  • Consider solutions
    Visit the Employee Strategies section of this site to view case studies aimed to spark ideas and new initiatives:
  • Evaluate the options:
    Conduct a cost/benefit analysis of initiatives that remove barriers to employee productivity and company success.
  • Get feedback:
    Before rolling out an initiative to the entire workforce, get a small group of employees together to provide critical feedback and identify potential pitfalls to implementation.
  • Share your success:
    Consider reaching out to other businesses to share ideas, resources, and strategies. Also, don’t forget to tell us about your good idea. Email your story to Stephanie Samuel and we’ll help you turn it into a case study that others can learn from.
Get support of leadership…. Partner with others in your organization. Having a proposal that you put forward to your organization, if it's a combination of HR, with finance, with legal, is a lot more powerful than to just come forward and say well I have this proposal and then find out later if others will support it or then you are in a room and somebody saying, well, financially we can't do that or legally we can't do that. – Elisa Wyman
