i4cp: Three Quarters of Companies Providing Support for Employees Working from Home While Caring for Children (i4cp login required)


full 75% of organizations say they’re offering support and resources for
employees working from home during the coronavirus pandemic while also caring
for and/or homeschooling their children.

New Institute
for Corporate Productivity (i4cp) data
finds 75% of 56 organizations saying
they are providing support and resources to employees who have been forced to
work from home throughout the coronavirus pandemic and are now balancing
childcare and/or homeschooling responsibilities as well.  

Those employers
who are already providing resources to these workers (and the additional 2%
considering doing so in the near future) are offering support in a number of
ways, such as: 

  • A
    10-day Pandemic Leave for employees who contract the virus, are caring for
    someone with the virus, are self-quarantining as a result of exposure, or are
    unable to complete work responsibilities due to childcare challenges. This is
    available prior to the use of any PTO being required.
  • A
    childcare subsidy of $100 per day if a family member or friend looks after
  • Backup
    child/elder care, as well as monthly reimbursement for incremental home
    office-related costs such as Internet or office supplies.
  • Providing
    full pay for employees unable to work due to childcare responsibilities, and additional
    cost coverage up to $500 for tutoring or childcare.
