Boston, MA (PRWEB) June 11, 2018
Torchlight, the only digitally powered employee family caregiver benefit solution for the full age continuum, announced today a complementary educational webinar for human resources professionals, brokers and consultants on “Best Practices in Corporate Caregiving - Real Tactics, Real Results” on Tuesday, June 19, 2018 at 12:00 p.m. ET. Torchlight Vice President of Product and Attorney Carolyn Romano will moderate the webinar and lead a discussion with participants from ReACT (Respect a Caregiver’s Time), UPMC, and United Way of Southwestern Pennsylvania about the best practices that world-class employers are implementing today to support their employees in times of both family crisis and everyday challenges.
Attendees will learn to:
-- Understand the macro-level business landscape related to caregivers in a company’s workforce
-- Explain why ReACT and its 30 national corporate members are addressing the issue today
-- Recognize the best practices from current ReACT member companies that have enabled their employees to successfully juggle
their two full time jobs: at the office and at home
-- Calculate the business justification that these companies’ executive teams use for launching caregiver-friendly benefits and policies
“Companies across the United States are recognizing that supporting employees and their families creates a financial and strategic advantage,” said Romano. “One in six employees is struggling with difficult family challenges at any given moment. Yet, in reality, on average, an employer’s entire workforce is facing some type of caregiving challenge daily. Torchlight’s upcoming webinar will help companies understand the best practices and real tactics they need to implement within their benefits plan to ensure they are on the path to being a family-first company. In a way, it’s about leveraging compassion.”
