Childcare Effects on Workplace
November 10, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
Join us as we discuss a major barrier to workforce participation and how to overcome it. We will discuss current employer and employee childcare related issues and gain insight on how your business can help support your employees, no matter your business size. Research shows that employers who provide family-friendly policies and benefits retain existing talent, attract new talent, and experience improved productivity.
The Employer Childcare Development Program supports Nevada businesses, of all sizes, with a free consultation to take a deep dive into how they support their staff’s family obligations and work/life balance. Let us help you decide which options are right for your business. Using our 5-step process, we will help you design a plan to support your employees and be competitive in attracting and retaining talent. The program is funded through American Rescue Plan Act.
