Caregiving Playbook 2021

About the Playbook:

This playbook is for leaders and organizations who want to be at the forefront of change and who understand that the vast majority of workplaces have never accommodated the realities of working parents—especially working mothers. In it, you’ll find an overview of our status quo, advice from experts and organizational leaders, and actionable strategies to address flexibility, benefits, and culture.

Key Takeaways: Working parents need flexibility

  • To support parents and other caregivers, companies must provide adequate paid family leave, child-care benefits, and mental health and coaching support.

  • At organizations that already provide these benefits, managers must provide the education and support that employees need to take full advantage of them.

  • Employers must create work cultures that value caregiving at every step of the employee life cycle.
