Supporting the Caregivers in Your Workforce

Monday, January 29, 2024 | 12:30p.m.-4:00 p.m.

Caregiving has always been a top issue for workers, but it has not always been top-of-mind for employers. The Covid-19 pandemic changed that–bringing caregiving challenges to the forefront of every employer’s attention. But now that the COVID-era shutdowns and stay-at-home orders are behind us, employers are reevaluating thoughtful and strategic approaches to supporting caregivers while also serving and achieving organizational goals. This session will explore thoughtful and strategic approaches for supporting caregivers while also serving and achieving organizational goals. Attendees will participate in group discussions, share insights with likeminded employers, learn through case studies, and leave with a checklist of questions, items to inventory, and a road map for building a caregiving strategy.

Attendees will learn:

  • The challenges and obligations caregivers face
  • How to identify or estimate the caregivers in your workforce, and the impact on your organization
  • The effect of caregiving on different demographic groups and its influence on diversity, equity and inclusion efforts
  • How to leverage existing benefits, state and local programs, and new programs to support them.
