A recent report by Wells Fargo economists found that access to child care has been shown to boost labor force participation among mothers. For employers struggling to find workers, improving child care options for parents means a larger and more experienced workforce to draw upon.
PRLA has partnered with Start Strong PA to learn more about how access to child care is specifically impacting hospitality sector employers and employees.
We’ve created an Employer Survey to understand how access to child care is impacting operators’ recruiting and retention efforts. This survey is for any owner/operator/general manager of a hospitality business.
The Employee Survey is meant to be shared with all employees so that we can learn more about their experiences balancing work and life when it comes to child care.
The results of both surveys will be anonymized and used to encourage more investment in child care programs so that parents can re-enter the workforce. •
