Offering on-site or near site child care in the workplace can have many benefits to companies, including: improving employee morale and productivity, creating a deeper sense of commitment to the organization, and generate more opportunities to recruit top notch talent. On-site and near site child care has been known to lower absenteeism and aids in retention which lowers the costs of recruiting and training new hires.
Parents who have access to on-site child care express lower stress levels and a better work life balance because they are not distracted while working and they have the opportunity to spend more time with their children as they commute to work. Employers can find benefits such as tax breaks, more employee engagement, less absenteeism, and greater loyalty and commitment.
