A recent Catalyst-CNBC survey
of 1,000 working parents across the United States found that
- More than half (57%) of working parents said they believe being a parent is a strike against them in the workplace
- Four in 10 (41%) parents say they have less job security due to the pandemic, and fear being penalized because they have childcare responsibilities.
By ignoring the concerns of their subordinates, companies risk losing valuable staff and incurring often higher costs to hire and train new employees.
