Caregiving and the Workplace

Caregiving results in an overall cost to business of $33.6 billion per year due to absenteeism, supervisory time, unpaid leave, and reduced hours. Family caregiving is also estimated to add another $13.4 billion or an 8% differential to healthcare business costs. How do we convince companies to provide resources to help their employees manage their jobs and their caregiving responsibilities?
