When you think about supporting your employee population, you know that no two employees have the exact same needs. The same goes for the working parents within your population. Every family is different. Their needs can vary wildly based on their family structure, childrens’ ages, external support available, and a host of other factors.
To retain working parents, it’s essential that employers evaluate how their employees’ needs continue to change and adapt offerings accordingly. It can feel overwhelming to know how to uniquely support all of your employees all of the time. We’re here to help. The first step is simple: ask your people what they need. We created a survey for you to send to your employees—particularly working parents—to understand what they need to feel supported to be their very best at work and at home.
See below for the most important questions we recommend and download the full survey to get started assessing your employees’ needs:

Working parents are at particular risk of burnout. This can jeopardize their well-being, as well as performance, retention, and office morale

20% of healthcare spending goes to new mothers and kids. Yet new moms make up only about 5% of a workforce. Avoidable, high-cost interventions are often the cause.

When a caregiver’s professional productivity is derailed, it can negatively impact coworkers, supervisors, and an office’s overall performance.
