SHELTON, Conn. (PRWEB) April 12, 2018
In 2017, utilization of LifeCare’s Backup Care Connection service increased over 40% from 2016. The escalation in demand is indicative of the rapidly growing corporate interest in supporting employees with their unexpected care needs – whether for children, adults, pets, or themselves.
Companies are choosing Backup Care Connection because it’s the most flexible backup care service in the industry. LifeCare members can choose from a large selection of network care providers and locations, or access robust, out-of-network options (including friends & family). As such, Backup Care Connection offers unmatched efficiency in reducing employee stress while increasing their work attendance and productivity.
“The demand for our Backup Care Connection has seen an incredible increase due to our ability to tailor our programs to the individual needs of every client, ensuring all members receive the highest levels of service and flexibility possible,” says Peter Burki, CEO of LifeCare. “We understand backup care needs aren’t one-size-fits-all. Only by providing best-in-class options, flexibility, and reliability can true peace-of-mind be found by our members.”
Beyond reducing employee absences, companies using Backup Care Connection also enjoy increases in employee loyalty and morale while improving their ability to attract and retain talent. The increased attendance enabled by Backup Care Connection is of great importance to companies - according to the Society for Human Resources Management, unplanned employee absences result in productivity losses of 36.6%, an enormous negative effect on any company’s bottom line.
“I believe the growth we’ve seen is just the beginning of an employee-driven upswing,” continues Burki. “As work and unexpected needs continue to demand more of employees, our Backup Care Connection is standing by, ready to reduce stress and increase productivity.”
