CAREGIVER-FRIENDLY WORKPLACE STANDARD
A strategy for progressive employers
Canadian employers can implement effective caregiver inclusive and accommodating workplace practices to ensure their employees who are balancing work and care are supported and productive. Whether an employer wants to gain a competitive advantage or ensure compliance with local legal requirements, creating a carer-friendly workplace is a sound investment.
The new Carer-Inclusive and Accommodating Organizations Standard, developed by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Group with McMaster University, can be used by employers to meet legal requirements, enhance work-life balance for worker-carers, improve workforce retention and reduce healthcare costs.
