Feeding Indiana’s Hungry is proud to announce that we are a Certified Good Wages Initiative Employer of Choice. Overseen by EmployIndy, the Good Wages Initiative (GWI) recognizes employers who pay a sustainable wage of $18 per hour and offer health benefits to full-time employees.
“Paying good wages and providing employer-sponsored health insurance provides businesses with critical advantages in today’s labor market, from reductions in turnover to increased productivity,” says Marie Mackintosh, EmployIndy’s chief strategy officer. “Employees experience reduced financial stress and improved health outcomes while the community benefits through increased
buying power and overall job growth. Good Wages Initiative partner employers set themselves apart by publicly stating their commitment to ensuring Indianapolis has a vibrant economy that is good for businesses, good for workers, and good for the community.”
