We will work with you to custom-build an elder care benefits package for your workplace, whether you are interested in onsite seminars, crisis intervention consultations, or discounts on caregiving services for your employees. Once we have a plan in place, we work directly with your employees to help manage care for their loved ones. The benefits to your business are immediate – you’ll see increased productivity, reduced absenteeism, improved recruitment and retention, and a surge in loyalty and morale.
Why should my business provide elder care benefits?
The workforce is aging – and becoming caregivers. Within six years, one third of the workforce will be over 50 years old. These employees – men and women alike – shoulder the burden of caring for aging loved ones who become increasingly dependent with time. Those responsibilities wind up costing employers in lost time and productivity. A recent study by MetLife found that employees with intense caregiving responsibilities cost their employers an average of $2,441 each year due to absenteeism, diminished productivity, stress-induced illness, and turnover.
What types of businesses provide elder care benefits?
All types of employers are coming to recognize the need for senior care benefits. Top Fortune 500 companies, including Microsoft, Exxon Mobil, and Ernst & Young, now offer caregiver benefits to employees. 42 of the 50 employers on the AARP’s “Best Employers” list offer an eldercare benefits program. Locally, Indiana University and Bloomington Hospital are among the employers that provide services to help employees coordinate and manage senior care.
