Essential Care for Essential Workers Executive Brief
The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated a challenge that was becoming increasingly more difficult even before the public health crisis—finding affordable, quality childcare for working parents throughout the country. Since the beginning of the pandemic, hundreds of employers have reached out to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation seeking solutions to support working parents in essentials roles.
This executive briefing is a roadmap for senior leaders to understand what options are available to address childcare needs for frontline working parents, primarily working shifts during non-traditional hours. It also includes information about what to expect on the journey and how to put strategies into action for their business.
