Challenges for Working Parents
According to the Department of Labor, working parents make up approximately 41% of the workforce. These parents have been trying to balance remote working and child care since March. Most schools in Massachusetts are either entirely remote or have a hybrid structure. About 54% of parents said that they would not be able to return to work if schools did not reopen fully this year, and 56% said that they would have to buy additional technology to support their child’s schooling if it was remote. This is a new and unfamiliar landscape and parents must maintain open communication with their children, as individuals of all ages are feeling increased levels of anxiety. HR and wellness professionals are constantly figuring out how to support their employees in this new scenario.
