Waltham, MA (PRWEB) March 22, 2010
Today Care.com (http://www.care.com), the premier source of trustworthy family care options, announced a partnership with Ceridian Health & Productivity Solutions. As part of the agreement, Care.com will provide caregiving resources and discounted access to its nationwide network of care providers for Ceridian LifeWorks program customers and their employees.
This new relationship with Ceridian will help Care.com move forward in its mission to give working families access to the local, high-quality providers they need to care for their children and loved ones and improve work/life balance. Since the site’s launch in 2007, the service has helped tens of thousands of families find babysitters, nannies, home care for seniors, pet sitters and more, making Care.com the largest and fastest-growing online resource families use to connect to care.
The Ceridian LifeWorks program helps companies provide employees with tools to support everyday living. Families use LifeWorks Online to efficiently find resources for parenting, child care, elder care and finances. By providing workers with these much-needed support systems, companies who use LifeWorks can realize increased productivity, improved morale and lower employment costs. The Care.com service will be added to LifeWorks beginning in early April.
“We’re excited to start this new partnership,” said Sheila Lirio Marcelo, Founder and CEO of Care.com. “Both of our organizations are focused on giving families access to quality care and improving work/life balance, so this is a perfect match. We’re excited to join with Ceridian and become a valuable resource for its clients as we help them find caregivers for their children, families and home.”
“We are proud to be adding Care.com to our suite of discounted programs within our LifeWorks program,” said Ceridian Senior Product Manager Jen Piliero, “Increasingly, our participants are looking for more caregiving options for their growing and ever-changing family needs. Care.com offers web based resources our customers can trust."
Care.com helps families connect with local babysitters, nannies, special needs care, senior home care, pet sitters, tutors and housekeepers through a national network of trusted caregivers. Families in need of quality caregivers can search by ZIP code, service and pay rate to find high-quality care providers in their area.
As an added benefit to care-seeking families, provider profiles on Care.com include references and background checks, and a team of experienced moms reviews all profiles before listing them online. These measures provide families with extra layers of confidence and security when they make important decisions regarding their family care needs.
Founded in 2006, Care.com is the largest and fastest growing service used by families to find high-quality caregivers, providing a trusted place to easily connect, share caregiving experiences and get advice. The company addresses the unique lifecycle of care needs that each family goes through—child care, special needs care, tutoring and lessons, senior care, pet care, housekeeping and more. The service helps families find and select the best care possible based on detailed profiles, background checks and references for hundreds of thousands of mom-reviewed providers who seek to share their services. Through its Care.com for Recruiters service, Care.com also enables companies to find high-quality caregiving employees.
