The Best Places To Work for Working Daughters is a program to recognize companies that support family caregivers. Through The Best Places to Work For Working Daughters Program, companies can benchmark against peers and promote their supportive work culture. Inclusion on the list sends a strong message that a company understands and supports working caregivers.
Many companies have programs in place to help workers who are parents, but equally important is supporting workers with parents – the working daughters and sons who care for aging and/or ill family members.
Why We Need This Program
More than 1 in 6 working Americans assist with the care of an elderly or disabled family member, relative, or friend. Seventy percent of those caregivers suffer work-related difficulties due to their dual roles. Working daughters especially suffer loss of wages and risk losing job-related benefits because they switch to less demanding jobs, take time off, or quit work altogether in order to accommodate their caregiving responsibilities. The cost to businesses from caregivers leaving the work force is an estimated $3.3 billion. Supporting caregivers at work must be a business imperative.
Inclusion on the list sends a strong message that a company understands and supports working caregivers. Companies that do not make the list will not be revealed.
