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
