In today’s edition: 


Companies should prioritize care benefits, research shows

Career recognition

Care.com, an online marketplace for caregiving support, recently released a report showing that employees, regardless of age, greatly appreciate care-related benefits. As a result, that can determine employee productivity and just how successful the company is. 🙌

Specifically, the 2024 Future of Benefits Report states that, since accessing childcare and senior care benefits can be essential in performing one’s job, employers who provide them directly enhance team engagement and productivity. 🎯

This holds true for both younger and older workers: Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X and Boomers agree that caregiving support is vital. So much so that 21 % of the 1,000 benefits-eligible employee respondents stated that they would change jobs to obtain this type of support — 20 % stated they have previously left a job for this reason.

Meanwhile, of the 620 C-level executives and HR professionals surveyed, more than half (55 %) are prioritizing childcare benefits in 2024, up 10 % from the previous year; 50 % are also focusing on senior care benefits, up 7 % since 2023.

As RTO arrangements increase, care benefits allow employees to transition back into the office setting more smoothly. This is made all the more evident by the survey: child care and senior care benefits ranked among the top 3 for employee respondents!
