Untapped potential: How childcare impacts Texas's workforce productivity and the state economy [Executive summary]

Share
Description:

In this study we looked at the causes of childcare challenges as well as motivations behind why parents select various childcare arrangements. Many employers want to facilitate greater access to childcare as a way of creating productive work environments and satisfied employees but do not know where to begin or how to expand or improve current benefits or options. To answer these questions, we sought to learn what types of childcare benefits working parents are currently receiving and which benefits they desire most from employers. Importantly, we considered the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on childcare, which put an unprecedented burden on parents who saw schools and childcare settings closed or rendered unsafe for millions of children.
