FFNM Past Virtual Workshop: Employer-Based Child Care

Employer-Based Child Care
Understand the Business Case and How to Get Started

The pandemic has placed a spotlight on the link between child care and the economy, and employers are now being called upon to facilitate the needs of a workforce that is in high-demand. One third of the U.S workforce (50 million workers) has a child under 14 in their household and nearly 20% of workers surveyed have had to leave work or reduce working hours due to a lack of childcare. Workplace policies that help bridge this gap function as a competitive advantage for recruitment and retention. This workshop will offer a panel discussion on the business case and different options for how to provide employer-based childcare.

Learning Objectives:

  • Facilitate an understanding of the current needs of the caregiving workforce
  • Promote knowledge of how to utilize resources that are available to employers
  • Offer real-life examples of employer-based child care
