Benefits to corporations when they support working parents

Corporations can reap several benefits when they support employees in their personal lives, particularly by providing support to working parents. Let’s explore some of the advantages when employers support working parents.

Enhanced Employee Retention and Engagement: a. According to a study by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), organizations that offer family-friendly benefits, such as parental leave and flexible work arrangements, experience higher employee retention rates. Supporting working parents creates a positive work environment that fosters loyalty and commitment. (Source: SHRM, 2019) b. A research report by Ernst & Young (EY) highlights that companies with supportive work-life balance policies see increased employee engagement and productivity. Providing resources for working parents demonstrates a commitment to employee well-being and helps create a culture of work-life integration. (Source: EY, 2019)


Improved Recruitment and Talent Acquisition: a. The Deloitte Global Millennial Survey reveals that a significant percentage of millennials (a generation that makes up a substantial portion of the workforce) prioritize work-life balance and family-friendly policies when considering job opportunities. Companies that offer support to working parents are more likely to attract and retain top talent. (Source: Deloitte, 2020) b. A Glassdoor survey found that around 57% of job seekers consider benefits and perks as one of the top factors when evaluating job offers. Providing support to working parents can serve as a competitive advantage in attracting skilled professionals. (Source: Glassdoor, 2017

Increased Productivity and Engagement: a. The Harvard Business Review published an article citing a study by the American Psychological Association, which found that employees who feel supported in their personal lives are more engaged, less likely to experience burnout, and demonstrate higher levels of job satisfaction. This translates into increased productivity and improved performance at work. (Source: Harvard Business Review, 2019) b. Research conducted by Brigham Young University found that employees who have access to family-friendly policies and support report higher job satisfaction and greater commitment to their organizations. These factors contribute to higher levels of productivity and lower turnover rates. (Source: Brigham Young University, 2019)

Positive Employer Branding and Reputation: a. The Corporate Responsibility Magazine’s “100 Best Corporate Citizens” list includes companies that prioritize employee well-being, including support for working parents. Such recognition enhances a company’s reputation as a socially responsible employer, attracting both customers and potential employees. (Source: Corporate Responsibility Magazine, 2021) b. A study published in the Journal of Vocational Behavior showed that organizations that offer family-friendly policies and support have a more positive image and are perceived as being more caring and supportive by job seekers. This positive employer branding can contribute to long-term success in recruitment and retention efforts. (Source: Journal of Vocational Behavior, 2017)

By providing support to working parents, corporations can benefit from improved employee retention, increased productivity and engagement, enhanced recruitment outcomes, and a positive employer brand. These factors contribute to a more motivated and committed workforce, ultimately driving business success.
