Supporting caregivers at work makes good business sense

“Every time he lost another ability, the grieving process would start over. Coupled with this emotional strain, I was dealing with the physical strain of caregiving. I began working less and neglecting my health and my severe abdominal pain.”
Susan R., caring for her husband

“The benefits of caregiving policies trump costs: workers are more motivated, more productive, and have higher morale.”
TimesUpFoundation.org

“Start small, start by having conversations with employees and helping caregiver colleagues connect with each other. Once people start talking about it, things will evolve.”
Nancy Lefebre, Chief Clinical Executive & SVP Knowledge and Practice at SE Health

“Supporting our staff is the socially responsible change we want to see as a new standard for all employers in Canada.”
Connie Clerici, President/CEO Closing The Gap Healthcare Group

“The biggest challenge with caregiving has been trying to maintain a work/life balance. Maintaining a job while caring for your parents and family can be a real struggle. I sometimes feel isolated and overwhelmed with tasks I was confronted with. Respite was a big help for me and would give me an opportunity for self-care for a moment.”
Dawn, caring for her mother and father

“Employees thrive when given the support they need to do their jobs well.”
Brian Lamb, Global Head of Diversity and Inclusion at JPMorgan Chase

“My mother had to leave her job due to the amount of time off she was taking to care for my brother and my father was also taking significant time off work as well. When I was in high school, I was staying home from school for weeks on end to help with my brother Dylan.”
Jeremy Roberts, MPP Ottawa West-Nepean, caring for his brother

The paper highlights the context for national legislative and policy approaches to supporting #working #caregivers. This is important especially where female employment has become the norm alongside family roles and in the context of population ageing.

Transnational Carer-Employees (TCE) are immigrants or Indigenous populations who reside and work in Canada while simultaneously providing care to parents, adults living with a disability, and children who live in their home country or province. And the research shows that the challenges were greater during COVID-19. Employers can help these workers by ensuring that they are aware of Carer-Friendly Workplace Policies.

Check out the blog highlighting a recent paper "Availability of caregiver‐friendly workplace policies (CFWPs): an international scoping review". This comparative nation-state study of CFWPs provides the baseline data to allow the scale-up of the Carer-inclusive Standard for global uptake. Continued uptake of CFWPs is necessary to create workplace accommodations that foster work–family balance for carer employees while assisting employers to retain talented and skilled workforce.

- Inability to take a break (29%)
- Lack of support from friends and family due to concerns about #COVID_19 exposure (25%)
- Gaining access to health care social services/care professionals to address/support other illnesses/ailments beyond #COVID_19 (24%)

Per Canada-Carer Wellbeing Index: 70% of #employee #caregivers feel that #COVID_19 has worsened their mental health: 20% say COVID has significantly worsened their wellbeing, while 50% say it has "somewhat" worsened their mental health. There are many reasons for this decline in #caregiveremployees wellbeing. The 5 most common reasons as to why were:

1. Isolation and loneliness due to physical distancing / sequestering orders.
2. Anxiety about balancing paid work & caregiving responsibilities.
3. Less time to spend with family/friends.
4. Severe lack of sleep due to worrying about the person/people for whom they provide #caregiving support.
5. More fear than ever that the person cared for is going to die.

#Employers need to consider that caregiving responsibilities are not going to end after the pandemic. Organizations choosing to be intentional in their support of caregivers will have better odds of employee loyalty and of retaining their talent. It just makes sense.

#Employee #caregivers are #workers who are also providing care to a family member / friend. This means they have a second job - one that is unpaid and often very challenging. However, each individual experience is different and can change over time. As a co-worker it can be very helpful to acknowledge the caregivers on the team. Understanding is an important step to creating a #caregiver friendly #workplace.

This may seem counter-intuitive but many #employee #caregivers want to keep their jobs and appreciate #employers who try to accommodate. Support = better balance and ability to do both jobs #paid and #caregiving… in the end better bottom line for the #employeecaregiver and the #organization

Did you know? This may be because #employee #caregivers are juggling multiple responsibilities and do not want to let anyone down - particularly their team at work. Consider that your team members may need support to continue to succeed. Acknowledge their #caregiving and offer to collaborate on supportive strategies.

Employees who are balancing work and care are especially vulnerable to external pressures and anxieties, many of which can impact the workplace.

Per @statcan_eng _eng 19% of caregivers indicate their physical and emotional health suffer when they juggle work and care.

Services offered by employers provide a safety net for employees.

It takes flexible supportive policies to keep caregivers. It is also important for employees to let their employers know how they can help… most will do so @caregiversab #caregivers #caregiver #CaringForCaregivers #workingcaregivers #carer #carers #caregiverstress #youngcaregiver #caregiverlife #caregiverstress #caregiveremployment #caregiveremployees #caregiving #support #resilience ...

Many organizations are caregiver knowledgeable and responsive- they know the value of supportive policies and practices #caregivers #caregiver #CaringForCaregivers #workingcaregivers #carer #carers #caregiverstress #youngcaregiver #caregiverlife #caregiverstress #caregiveremployment #caregiveremployees #caregiving #support #resilience ...

Employee caregivers are workers who are also proving care to a family member/friend. #caregivers #caregiver #CaringForCaregivers #workingcaregivers #carer #carers #caregiverstress #youngcaregiver #caregiverlife #caregiverstress #caregiveremployment #caregiveremployees #caregiving #support #resilience ...

Carers Canada is leading the knowledge mobilization activities for a multi-sectorial research program to spread and scale a carer-friendly workplace standard, known as the ‘Carer-Inclusive and Accommodating Organizations’ Standard (CSAB701-17). Led by Dr. Allison Williams, CIHR Research Chair in Gender, Work and Health at McMaster University, the research program consists of six inter-related sub-projects that will: increase awareness of the standard across Canada and evaluate readiness to change; determine feasibility and cost benefit; embrace cultural competency and indigenous perspectives; and, create an international standard.
