Employer Childcare Toolkit

Child care is a critical component of alleviating the worker shortage crisis.

Creating conditions for working families to thrive in your workplace must include supporting their access to affordable, dependable, quality child care. Companies that have provided resources and added childcare benefits to their employment packages are seeing quick and lasting rewards in recruiting, retention and productivity. 

This toolkit serves as a guide senior leaders and business owners through their options when supporting working families with childcare needs. Below are several categories with research and resources intended for employers to help their employees access child care. 

Employers are encouraged to distribute this Childcare Resources flyer to their employees, which will direct employees to financial assistance and information for families.

The information in this toolkit is provided exclusively to TalentFirst members & their employees as a membership benefit at no cost.
