Child Care While At Work

Summary: A crucial workplace issue is child care. Parents are concerned about who will take care of their children; employers recognize that this issue affects their bottom line. Studies show that child care issues can lead to

  • Increased tardiness and absenteeism
  • Higher turnover rates
  • Higher recruiting and training costs

Here are a few issues and concerns you may want to discuss with your employer:

  • Using personal sick time to care for ill children
  • Establishing an in-house day care center
  • Employer-assisted child care as a benefit
  • Flexible work arrival and departure times to meet family's schedule
  • Work-from-home options

Here are a few suggestions employees can explore with their employers:

  • Flexible work arrangements
  • Telecommuting programs
  • Parental leave policies
  • Paid time off to care for mildly ill children
  • Employer-assisted childcare
  • Programs and policies to reduce the stresses of balancing work and family commitments

Something to Think About...

Employees who believe that their employer supports their personal needs tend to be

  • Less stressed
  • More successful in balancing work and family life
  • More loyal to the company
  • More committed to their employers
  • More satisfied with their jobs
  • More likely to want to remain with their employers
