Caregiving benefits growing in popularity

Paid leave continues to be a hot topic among employers. As large companies like Netflix and municipalities such as Nashville have strengthened their family leave benefits, caregiving perks also rank high on workers’ must-have list of benefits.

Caregiving is among the top 10 employee health and wellness benefits priorities for most employers, according to a new survey by Northeast Business Group on Health and AARP, and most employers agree that in the next five years, caregiving is going to become an increasingly important issue among employees.
