The Employer of Choice Finding a helpful employer, an employer of choice, can greatly ease your caregiving burden. An understanding employer will have policies and procedures to help caregivers and more importantly will have a culture that reflects a progressive nature and caring hand toward family caregivers in the workforce. After all, six in ten people are caregivers and 25% of Millennials in the workforce are also family caregivers. That can be a great burden. Instead of losing good employees, progressive companies understand they need to keep them.
