The most recent comprehensive study (completed in 2018) concluded that 1-in-5 workers (aged 25+) is a caregiver to an aging loved one.  Organizations MUST be impacted when so many of their workers are struggling.  Because of a perceived (or real) lack of organizational support many workers don’t inform managers-or the organization-of their struggles. 

By not providing benefit packages with appropriate offerings or by not encouraging employees to use the benefits when they do exist companies incur millions of dollars of hidden costs in the form of:  

  • substantial productivity decreases
  • employee turnover,
  • loss of institutional knowledge (brain drain),
  • increased managerial challenges
  • increased HR involvement
  • decreased employee engagement
  • increased absenteeism
  • increased litigation expenses (companies lose 76% of litigations)
