Employees, and their families, come in all shapes and sizes. The benefits you offer should too.
In the U.S., more than 34 million families have children under 18. More than a million millennials are becoming moms every year. And, even though many among our largest generation are entering parenthood, they’re still more likely to own pets than have children or even be married or living with a partner. At the same time, 40-plus million Americans have provided unpaid care for children or adults in the past year.
Most of them have provided this care while working full-time. More than 90 percent of fathers, 70 percent of mothers and 60 percent of folks caring for aging loved ones are in the workforce. And most of these workers admit their care responsibilities have impacted work performance.
