The Employee Caregiver Program Series

Making the Vystar workplace more caregiver-inclusive

 

The Vystar Program Series

One in five U.S. workers are providing part-time care for an adult.

Over half don’t tell their supervisors about it, but all of them need to feel supported in their workplace. 


That's why Vystar has partnered with AARP and Workable Concept to bring a series of live, virtual programs to help employees balance their work and caregiving. You can find resources about all topics in the series here starting on the program date.

Making the Most of My Benefits as a Caregiver (Nov 16)

Most working family caregivers don’t have the time to navigate and use all the employer benefits that can support them as family caregivers and parents.     


Join us for a tactical look at the workplace benefits and policies that can support caregivers and/or parents. We’ll have a guest speaker from AARP who can highlight benefits caregivers often don’t fully use—and why they should. We’ll also have a special guest from our HR team to share the details and field Q&A about our organization’s support.

Presentation available [here]  as of program date.

How Every VRG Can Support Its Caregivers (Dec 13)

Every Employee Resource Group likely has family caregivers among its membership, since 1 in 5 employees provides part-time care for an adult.  

Only half of working family caregivers tell their supervisors about their caregiving, so ERGs can become a valuable place for caregivers to find community, support and resources.


Join us to learn five ways every ERG can support its caregivers. You’ll leave with AARP’s Caregiving ERG Toolkit to make it easy for your ERG to take action.

Self-Care for Caregivers (Jan 10)

When we are caring for kids and/or adults in our lives, we often put our own well-being on the back burner.    

Join us for a conversation about how to take actions both big and small to enhance your own well-being—so you can protect your own financial, physical, social and mental health even as you care for your loved ones. You’ll leave with a suite of AARP resources and your own plan for steps you can take towards self-care.

Navigating my Workplace as a Family Caregiver (Feb 7)

A whopping 44% of working family caregivers don't tell their supervisors about their caregiving responsibilities.  That doesn’t need to be you!     

Join us to talk about how to navigate your work and your relationships with your managers, peers, and loved ones so you can thrive in your career while balancing caregiving responsibilities. There’s no one-size-fits-all plan, so you’ll leave with your own personalized action plan to help you manage both the risks and opportunities of being a working family caregiver.
