Take Action

 

Support the Needs of Your Employees’ Families.   By driving down turnover, reducing absenteeism, and increasing productivity on the job, child care and work/life programs are not only an investment in employees, but an investment in the success of your company. In fact, after the first year of employment, most employee turnover occurs among the parents of young children. By providing programs that allow those parents to work – and perform to their full capacity –employers are able to reduce the recurring costs of recruiting and retaining skilled employees.

Now, more than ever, is the time for companies to make investments supporting the development of an educated workforce.  Finances alone will not get the job done.  We need to work side by side with the local community organizations to provide hands-on tutoring and mentoring, which are key to a child’s learning process.
