Best Places To Work for Working Daughters

Now in its 3rd year, The Best Places To Work for Working Daughters program, recognizes companies that truly support family 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. In fact, caregivers are the fastest growing employee group.

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.

How The Best Companies Are Chosen

The Best Places To Work for Working Daughters list is created based on an opt-in survey that evaluates companies on how their policies, benefits, and culture support working caregivers. There is no employee census. Surveys are available now and the list will be announced in September. Companies that do not make the list will not be revealed.

APPLY NOW

Once you register to apply, you will receive your questionnaire which must be completed and returned no later than July 26. The process does NOT require an employee survey. Companies that do not make the list will not be revealed. Winners will be announced via a press release on September 10.

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.
