Why develop an employer assisted housing program with LEVEL?
Across the country, employers are responding by offering employer-assisted housing programs designed to benefit their employees, their communities, and their companies. Employer assisted housing can be a cost-effective way to recruit employees and improve employee retention, productivity, morale, and attendance.
By encouraging the workforce to remain in the community – and at their place of employment – companies that use these programs spend less money on recruiting and training new employees. When employees are able to purchase homes near their jobs, employers see higher productivity and fewer problems with absenteeism– and the employer, employee, and the community as a whole all benefit with reduced commutes to and from work. Employers clearly have a stake in creating housing opportunities for the workforce. Employer assisted housing programs offer a cost effective way for businesses to help employees, reduce commutes, and improve their bottom line.
What does an employer-assisted housing program look like?
Our employer-assisted housing programs are designed with and for each employer, so they can take many forms. We work with you to develop a program that supports your goals —such as rewarding loyal long-standing employees, reducing commutes, or helping to rehabilitate your local neighborhoods.
This can include assistance with mortgages, down payments, and, of course, homeownership education and counseling.
What’s the commitment?
Learn about the program – The Program Manager meets with your leadership for a 30-minute presentation, details, and questions. When an employee moves within 1-3 miles of your business, they receive a financial incentive and benefits bag.
Sign the Live Close to Work agreement – the agreement states the employer is willing to participate in the program and contribute to the Live Close to Work Fund for employee incentives and employee incentive matching, and promote the program in their workplace.
Contribute a flat yearly rate, based on the number of employees
