Employed parents of all genders say their primary concern is not having enough time for their children.While every family is different, employers can still take an active role in supporting working parents (sometimes, their teenagers too).

 

Rising trends include onsite childcare, dependent care flexible spending accounts, fixed alternative hours, paid family leave policies, on-site amenities like gyms or banks, mental wellness, college savings assistance, and even laundry services. Just as there is no one kind of family, there is no one solution, but there are plenty of resources and tools.
