One in 6 U.S. employees currently provides care to a family member or loved one. Failure to support employee caregivers can cost $3,000 per worker in higher health care costs, productivity loss, absenteeism and, ultimately, turnover.

In this session, you learn specific steps you can take to support your employee caregivers.  Key session takeaways include:

  • Demographic and labor trends contributing to the rise of working caregivers

  • Benefits and tactics for supporting the caregivers in your workforce

  • Thoughts from leaders who have implemented programs/policies that support working caregivers
