Chamber survey highlights impact of workforce productivity due to child care demands

Businesses of all sizes have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Organizations that could operate remotely altered their operations and working parents quickly adjusted to the reality of managing work and child care needs simultaneously. As the school year begins and school districts make decisions on how they will educate students, either through in-person, virtual, or hybrid options, working parents and caregivers now face the challenge of how to manage both work and educational responsibilities. To understand the impacts this will have on the workforce, the Detroit Regional Chamber surveyed businesses on employee concerns and plans for mitigating child care challenges in the unprecedented reality that is COVID-19. The survey of nearly 100 respondents was conducted on August 5-14, 2020, via an online surveying tool. (author abstract)
