Caregiving is an Employer Issue
Employee absenteeism is on the rise
Caregiving isn’t just a challenge facing an individual. It’s an employer issue as well. The obligations of work and ongoing care for an elderly family member can put even the most dedicated employee in an impossible position, and there’s no question that caregiving takes a toll on career. The employee absenteeism statistics are overwhelming:
- 36% report missing one to five days per year because of caregiving duties
- 30% say they missed six or more days in the past year.
- Caregivers reported missing an average of 6.6 workdays per year.
With approximately 17% of the American full-time workforce acting as caregivers, this amounts to a combined 126 million missed workdays each year.
This eBook written by Meaghan M. Biro of TalentCulture is for anyone responsible for employee benefits that is looking for resources to solve problems and challenges of employee absenteeism as a result of elderly caregiving.
