The Caregiving Crisis: How to Support Your Workforce Now and into the Future

The Caregiving Crisis:
How to Support Your Workforce Now and into the Future

August 20, 2024 | 12 p.m.–1 p.m. CT

A special joint webinar for NWI & WELCOA members only!
One in five employees is currently caring for another adult, and this number is expected to rise dramatically over the next six years as more than 4 million Americans reach age 65 each year. Caregivers can experience significant increases in stress, anxiety and depression during this difficult time. Furthermore, increased absences, decreased work output and attrition due to lack of employer support has been the norm. Both workers and workplaces are impacted due to adult caregiving responsibilities, but it doesn't have to be this way. Let's have a conversation about how workplaces can care for their caregivers now and into the future.
Learning Objectives
Following this webinar, you will be able to:
    • explain the business case for workplaces to invest in and provide support for employees who are caregivers.
    • identify benefits and resources that have been shown to have the most impact for caregivers and employers.
    • list steps to provide more support and resources for caregivers in their workplace.
