PORTABLE BENEFITS: THE MODERN SAFETY NET
The rise of the gig economy has changed many aspects of daily living—transport, travel, and even how we order a burrito. It has also changed how we think about benefits and employee protections.
In the latest sf.citi blog, we take a look at portable benefits. Though not exactly a new concept, benefits that move with you from job to job and are not contingent on employee status have gained new appeal with the growing number of independent contractors in the American workforce. Recognizing that our benefits system needs to modernize and better accommodate gig workers, policymakers are exploring portable benefits at both the federal and state level.
sf.citi delves deeper into these policy discussions, examines the pros and cons around portable benefits, and highlights some examples of portable benefits in action, particularly within the tech industry. Find out all you need to know below.
sf.citi TEAM & MEMBERS JOIN IN THE MARCH FOR MEALS
The sf.citi team joined many of our members and city leaders in supporting Meals on Wheels for the kickoff of their national March for Meals campaign.
Today’s March for Meals Mid-Market Champion Day honors the lives and accomplishments of homebound seniors in San Francisco’s Tenderloin and South of Market (SoMa) neighborhoods, areas in which senior poverty is higher than in any other part of the city. The sf.citi team delivered disaster preparedness kits to several low-income seniors and adults with disabilities. We loved working alongside employees from sf.citi member companies, including Google, Salesforce, Twitter, and Zoox, to support our longtime partner Meals on Wheels San Francisco (MOWSF) in delivering hundreds of disaster preparedness kits to our local community.
San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors, as well as a number of other city leaders, also contributed to the campaign. Each of the eleven Supervisors have been invited to deliver a meal and gift to one senior in her or his district. At today’s event, Emma Heiken of Mayor Breed’s office awarded a commendation certificate to MOWSF Executive Director and CEO, Ashley McCumber, for the organization’s commitment to providing meals and services to San Francisco’s older neighbors.
