The Opportunity Navigator has been embraced by employers. During its rollout, about 70% of the initial employers included in the launch started the survey. Since then, leading companies, such as CVS and Bank of America, are seeing significant business benefits – such as reduced turnover, improved retention, and increased diversity and employee engagement – as a result of implementing Opportunity Employment practices.
We’ve had the opportunity to demonstrate the Opportunity Navigator to several employers and workforce professionals over the past few months. The feedback has been incredibly positive. People love the elegance and simplicity of the tool. It’s fun to use and offers the user immediate value. Thanks to our partnership with Social Driver the field now has a much-needed resource that we hope translates into real impact for frontline workers in the U.S."
