Work-Life

The Business Group’s Well-being & Workforce Strategy initiatives address employee and family well-being broadly. Employers of all types and sizes increasingly take a holistic view of well-being at home and at work, a view that recognizes the importance of mental and emotional health, financial security, social and community connection and job satisfaction, in addition to physical health. Family well-being, particularly the ability to take leave and to work flexibly, as job requirements permit, is a particular focus today. On the rise: expanded leave policies to support families around predictable as well as unplanned life events.

A survey of Business Group member companies in 2018 showed: 

  • Two-thirds offer assistance with elder care resources
  • About a quarter provide on-site or near-site child care centers
  • More than a quarter offer paid or unpaid leave (beyond FMLA) for employees to care for sick family members
  • Three-quarters offer flexible work arrangements for employees needing to care for family members
  • Nearly 100% offer bereavement leave for full-time hourly and salaried employees; 65% offer for part-time hourly employees
  • The bereavement time offered for close relatives averages 4 to 4.5 days
