Child Care: plays a critical role in your workforce retention.
Research and community conversations tell us Iowa is in a child care crisis, a crisis that is no longer just a family issue. It is a workforce issue, a business issue and a community issue. In many Iowa communities where child care is either unaffordable, inaccessible or nonexistent, working parents miss work, drop shifts, are less engaged on the job, switch employers or leave the workforce altogether.
Child care-related work benefits can be a valuable tool for businesses looking to develop, grow, and retain their workforce. Research shows that increasing access to quality, affordable child care options isn't just a great perk for employees - it's good for your bottom line and can play a critical role in your workforce retention strategy.
Learn how to work with both organizations to improve your workforce and employee retention.
