Show support to your loyal employees who are stressed with the idea of moving their elderly parent(s). And of course provide corporate support when staff need to be relocated. This allows staff to continue to focus on their career, rather than worry about their move, or their parents`move.
Offer to provide Home Suite Home Transitions services so your employees can remain focused on their career.
TIP: Productivity can be greatly reduced when employees are "distracted" from their career due to elderly parent concerns. Almost half of adult children providing care to elderly family members arrive late to work, leave early, or take time off during work days. Absenteeism due to conflict between work and family responsibilities costs Canadian employers an estimated $2.7 billion in lost time per year.2. Brink 2004.
