Our Thursday, December 17 webinar, “The Employer Dilemma: Helping Employees Juggle Work and Caregiving,” will provide insights on the growing trend of employees who are struggling to balance their paid jobs with caring for aging parents, children, spouses, or other family members.
Reserve your spot by registering today. The 60-minute webinar begins at 3:30 p.m. ET.
More than 1 in 6 employees are working paid jobs while managing the challenges of caregiving.1 For many of these employees, the stresses have only increased during COVID-19. The resulting health issues, loneliness, and feelings of isolation they experience can have very real financial impacts on your business — from loss of productivity to higher healthcare costs and turnover. A Harvard Business School report found that nearly one-third of survey respondents left their job to assist a frail parent and one-fourth resigned to care for a spouse.2
The webinar’s expert panel — led by Dr. Mike Usman, medical director at Beacon Health Options — will cover the economic cost of absenteeism, caregivers’ increased healthcare needs, and other issues that impact your workforce and business. Panelists include experts from Kellogg’s, Providence Health Plan, and CareMore Health.
