Caregiving Trends, Caregiving ERGs and Mental Health ERGs

September 2019

One in six U.S. employees spend an average of more than 20 hours a week providing assistance and caring for a friend or relative. Among them, 56 percent worked full time, and on average, they worked 34.7 hours a week.

And research proves that when individuals have to cover (hide a part of who they are) productivity suffers, confidence and self-esteem wane, and ultimately the bottom line suffers.

More companies are stepping in to help employees tackle the challenges of caregiving while working full time and pivoting work-life balance. ERGs play a crucial role; they serve as a support system for caregivers and reminding employees of benefits available to them.

On the mental health front, companies are also starting to make sure that employees don’t feel left out and are engaged via ERGs and mental health programs.
