73% of employees reported having some type of current caregiving responsibilities.
Employees caring for a loved one provide an average of 20 caregiving hours per week.
32% of all employees have voluntarily left a job due to caregiving responsibilities.
Employees with caregiving responsibilities are stressed and distracted, often arriving to work late, rearranging their work schedules, and requesting unplanned time away from the office. Caring for someone recovering from surgery at home, for example, can be stressful, which leads to distraction and ultimately lower productivity. Lower productivity costs your business money - lots of it.
Beyond that, this stress negatively impacts your employees’ quality of life, leading to higher turnover rates.
“Employers are in a race to attract and retain the best talent and the growing presence of caregivers in the workplace represents both a threat to their success and an opportunity,” notes Debra Lerner, MSc, PhD in her whitepaper, Invisible Overtime: What employers need to know about caregivers.
Employee Caregivers are emotionally and mentally distracted. Caregiving responsibilities impair their ability to perform their best at work.
Reliable caregiver support is a fundamental element of well-being for your employees that is often overlooked. In fact, 80% of employees with caregiving responsibilities admitted that caregiving affected their productivity, according to a Harvard Study.
