The goal of the Employer Engagement Workgroup is to create a more flexible and supportive employer environment for employees who are supporting and caring for family members. See WFACSA's Employer Policy Brief.
The workgroup conducted a survey in 2018 to better understand the challenges employers experience as they address the needs of employees with caregiving responsibilities. More than 200 Wisconsin employers completed the survey and a report of the results can be found here: Employer Survey Summary The intent of the survey is to improve information and other resources available to Wisconsin employers as they support all caregivers on the job.
WFACSA continues to educate Wisconsin employers about the prevalence of caregivers in the workplace and how supporting these caregivers is a benefit to their company as well as to their employers.
