- Businesses have a more engaged workforce when their employees know their families’ basic needs are taken care of.
- Family-friendly workplace practices like flexible schedules, paid time off and flex-spending accounts help businesses attract and retain a workforce that is more present, prepared and productive.
- A business’s practices can contribute directly to strengthening families, including making sure employees are aware of community-based resources that they can access in times of need.
- Hosting events for employees to learn about community resources and providing employees with a list of locally available support services can help to create a culture where offering and accepting support is standard practice. This results in stronger employees – and a stronger company.
