Creating a culture of care Equal Parts

    • Kids & Family

Most workers have caregiving responsibilities. And, for the majority of us, these responsibilities can interfere with our performance at work. But half of companies are (still!) in the dark about it. They never ask about nor track how caregiving affects their workforce and their business. Amy Henderson is shedding much-needed light on this problem. She’s the CEO and co-founder of TendLab, an organization that’s working to create a better future for working parents and caregivers, and the author of Tending: Parenthood and the Future of Work. Amy shares insights from The Leaders' Guide to Creating a Culture of Care, which TendLab developed in partnership with TIME’S UP. She offers advice and actionable steps business leaders, managers, and employees can take to create a workplace culture that supports and celebrates caregiving.

Listen to this episode to learn:
-Critical issues employers need to consider regarding caregiving as we enter the post-pandemic future of work
-How and why caring cultures are a competitive business advantage (and what’s at stake for those that don’t have them)
-How to bust the working parent stigma (including the one in your own head!)
-Advice for business leaders and managers on how to hold themselves – and the business – accountable for building trust with and supporting caregiving employees
-Why a continuous feedback loop of tracking, asking, and engaging employees about caregiving helps employers build strong caregiving cultures
-The important distinction between simply offering care benefits and socializing them across the organization
