We stand for workers.

We deliver outstanding training and benefits with a focus on equity and worker-employer collaboration.

Our History

RISE Partnership formed in 2019, when leaders of three labor-management trusts decided to create an entity that would improve delivery of training and benefits and leverage resources for the best worker experience.

The “shared services” model has proven to be a huge success—now enabling five labor-management trusts to maximize their resources for their program while benefiting from the expert program infrastructure built by RISE’s team of professionals.
