Caregivers Work LLC creator and President, John Paul Marosy, discusses how he came to understand the very real need for employers to provide support for workers faced with increasing caregiving roles for elderly parents or risk losing valuable employees.
John Paul discusses his work with employers and employees to empower both parties to manage the challenges that arise when employees must care for aging parents. He goes on to include the reasons it is so important for business organizations to make accommodations and even set policies that allow employees to better balance their responsibilities to employers and their caregiving responsibilities as well, stating that doing this helps employees, “Stay engaged. Stay involved. And, more importantly, avoid the costly turnover that no company can afford in today’s ever-tightening labor market.”
Over the course of the interview, he discusses the fact that reducing turnover is important for businesses. Particularly in the tight labor markets businesses face today. With increasing numbers of women in the workforce who are also responsible caregivers for aging parents and/or children of their own, businesses must adapt to accommodate those needs and support good employees trying to meet the demands of both.
