Employer Tools to Support Working Caregivers
Already, nearly 1 in 6 employees in the US also provides care to parents, siblings, children, relatives, or friends. Half of today’s working caregivers are Millennials and GenXers. Further, these numbers are projected to grow, with far more people needing care than those available to provide the care. We’ve learned that caregiving benefits can be powerful retention tools for employers, and supporting working caregivers doesn’t have to be expensive.
Yet, not all employers know how to support their working caregivers. We’ve partnered with AARP to create a three-pronged toolkit to help employers understand the demands on employee caregivers and the tangible, bottom-line benefits to supporting them. We’ve also identified specific steps employers can take to support their employee caregivers – often at low- or no-cost. In effect, we’re making it easier to know not only why to support employee caregivers, but also, how to support them. Enter here, to access our free toolkit.
