Create a Family-Friendly Workplace

Are you ready to attract and retain strong, skilled employees?

Start by creating a family-friendly workplace. Studies show that employees miss fewer days of work and are more productive when they have access to affordable, high-quality early care and education services.

There are many creative ways to support employees with families, including:

  • Connecting employees with information and resources about parenting, early childhood education options, or financial supports
  • Providing mothers with a clean, private area to pump and store breast milk
  • Implementing policies such as flexible work arrangements, paid family leave, or dependent care reimbursement plans
  • Supporting a local early care childhood education program in exchange for priority enrollment/reduced fees for your employees

Find more ideas like these on our Family-Friendly Workplace Checklist. Use the list to think about which options already exist at your business, potential options, and options with which thread could help.
