Today's workforce includes more than 23 million family caregivers, and that number is only projected to grow.
Competing for talent will be tougher as candidates increasingly look for employers who support this part of their life.
Employers can no longer assume who the caregivers are — 40 percent are men, and nearly half are Gen X and millennials. Support for working caregivers doesn't need to be complicated or expensive to drive positive impact . With employer support, working caregivers stay engaged, productive and healthy at work, contributing to the bottom line and overall organizational performance.
Employer Solutions for Family Caregivers provides a practical overview of how to assess and provide a range of caregiving benefits and supports, with information on business impact , current models and examples of what other employers are doing. This educational module was developed jointly by AARP and the Boston College Center on Aging and Work.
