B701HB-18 – Helping worker-carers in your organization
There are more than 5.6 million employees in Canada, representing approximately 35% of the workforce, with adult/elder caregiving responsibilities. Lack of workplace support can result in these individuals, also known as worker-carers, leaving the workforce, missing work days, taking early retirement, and experiencing reduced productivity. These costs to employers can be avoided.
