As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation is engaging with corporate leaders across the country regarding the impacts of this health and economic crisis on businesses and communities.
We sat down with business leaders driving the global corporate response to COVID-19 to learn more about their efforts, how they are navigating this uncharted territory, and what advice they have for others. First up in our COVID-19 Business in Action interview series is Anne H. Chow, Chief Executive Officer of AT&T Business.
Building on the work of other states, we partnered with the business communities in Idaho, Iowa, Mississippi, and Pennsylvania and their early education partners to understand just how much breakdowns in childcare cost each state. In this study we looked at the causes of childcare challenges as well as motivations behind why parents select various childcare providers. Knowing many employers want to facilitate more access to childcare but do not know where to begin, we sought to learn what types of childcare benefits working parents desire most from employers.
