the business case productivity insurance

Kids + Company provides low cost “productivity insurance” by ensuring employees have flexible, convenient and reliable emergency childcare options right near the office. At a cost of only $300 a year for up to 20 visits, some employees will work off the cost during the first day of saved productivity. One recent study estimates that total work time lost due to work-family conflict costs Canadian employers over $2 Billion per year.1 At CIBC, John Hunkin said, "if the [back-up] centre had not been available, two-thirds of registered parents reported they would have missed work. It definitely is a win-win situation."2
