How ERGs Can Help You Retain Employees with Caregiving Responsibilities
Updated: Oct 17
Such fun to host an AARP Family Caregiving sponsored webinar for Ellevate's national membership today! Here's what we covered:
With nearly 1 in 5 U.S. women considering quitting due to family responsibilities associated with the pandemic, leaders are looking for ways to support employees with caregiving responsibilities. Employee Resource Groups can be key in your efforts.
Join us for a sneak peek of the new Caregiving ERG Toolkit. This free resource is packed with research, activities, planning tools, and event ideas that enable any ERG to create an initiative to support employees who are caring for their aging loved ones, their kids—or both. Whether you’re just thinking about starting your first employee affinity group or already have an active global network of ERGs, this webinar is for you.
You’ll leave with practical, affordable tactics you can suggest to your employer and free tools that you can use immediately. We’ll even tee you up with a simple email template you can send within your organization at the end of the webinar—moving you from idea to action. Because you can inspire change from any position in your organization, not just from senior leadership roles.
The Caregiving ERG Toolkit was developed by AARP Family Caregiving, Spectrum Knowledge's Elevate program, and Workable Concept.
For the full deck to use with your own boss, HR leader and C-suite, I've attached it here. At the end of the presentation you'll find an email template you can simply cut and paste to ask your boss and/or HR leader for an initial conversation. Easy!
