Employer Supports for Pandemic Parenting
My organization has been quite gracious and extremely flexible with scheduling and extra "coworkers" popping into meetings as many parents abruptly found themselves without childcare. Our HR team is asking "what more can we do to support working parents?". Are there any programs you have in place to support the needs of parents at this time? We've considered ideas about resource libraries, virtual met ups for parents of children in like age groups, and engaging employees who had previous careers in education.
What are your companies doing to support this demographic?
