Summer doesn't always mean rest and relaxation for all. For working parents, the struggle to manage schedules, secure quality childcare and stay focused and productive at work becomes increasingly difficult in summer.
Many companies know this and are taking steps toward a more supportive workplace to attract and retain experienced workers. Here are five employers who are leading the trend with unusually refreshing perks for parents:
- Health insurance no matter how many hours they work
- Five paid days off per year to spend at a child's school or participate in a school-related activity
- Fridays off in July and August (working a compressed week)
- In-home and center-based backup care for $2 to $4 per hour
