Parents are redefining the world of work

0 2 years ago

Burnout is continuing to drive millions of parents to leave their jobs, and it’s disproportionately impacting mothers of color and young parents.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 10 million U.S. mothers with school-age children were not actively working in January 2021, confirming childcare isn’t a silver bullet when it comes to retaining women. What’s more, 64% of working parents intend to leave their jobs, indicating employees are no longer willing to put up with workplaces that aren’t meeting their needs.

Drawing on responses from nearly half a million working parents from more than 1,700 companies, Maven and Great Place to Work’s largest-ever study of parents at work arrives at a time when the world of work is rapidly changing. As employers reckon with the Great Resignation, they must evolve their strategies to not only retain but sustain working parents—or risk falling behind.
