Ensuring employee peace of mind through quality child care will benefit your business, all the way to the bottom line. Benefits to employers include: increased employee productivity; reduced absenteeism and turnover; enhanced employee recruitment efforts; strengthened public relations; and improved employee morale and loyalty.
As families have changed, so has your workforce.
- A majority of children live with two working parents or a single working parent.
- The workforce is 53% female, including 67% of mothers with children age six or under.
- Single fathers responsible for child care constitute one of America’s fastest growing consumer groups.
All of these parents have one common concern: caring for their children while they work. For parents, the overwhelming task of arranging child care creates stress and may affect productivity, work attitudes, absenteeism, longevity and a number of other critical areas bearing on employee performance.
