Employee Benefit News
Employees want to feel supported, not only in their professional lives, but in their personal lives. Taking care of the whole employee allows them to bring their best selves to work. This means taking care of what is important to them, like family. According to the Department of Health and Human Services, an estimated 49.5% of youth have had a mental health disorder at some point in their life. Allowing employees to take care of their children can be a huge win for parents and employers alike. So, how can organizations support this population? Flexible working situations, PTO, mental health services that go beyond the workplace, empathy and compassion are just a few ways employers can show their support.
