Help with childcare

Companies that commit to offering more childcare support to their workers have a huge advantage in recruiting and retaining working parents as employees. If your workplace doesn’t offer support with childcare arrangements consider raising the issue with your manager, co-workers or Human Resources. The support doesn’t always have to be financial; it could be help with flexible work times for school drop offs and pick-ups, time off for dependent care or dependent sick leave. Consider asking working parents what support they need or what they are not getting. Even small changes can make a positive impact for caregivers.
