1.25 SHRM PDCs | Competencies: HR Expertise, Critical Evaluation | Intended Audience: Midlevel
Workplace Application:
You will learn how to address, support, and measure the current well being of employee caregivers using a caregiver risk assessment. 

The statistics are clear: caregiving monumentally affects the workplace and the physical, mental, and financial well-being of employees. There is a growing need to support this overly stressed demographic of the workforce, and statistics show us it is not just limited to Generation X and baby boomers, but also Millennials. We will review the physical, mental, and financial impacts of employee caregiving, and will identify ways that you and the leaders of your company can empower and provide support for employee caregivers. This session will:

  • Identify current trends and statistics of employee caregiving across generations. 
  • Discuss how innovative tools can improve the physical, mental, and financial aspects of employees well-being. 
  • Explore a caregiver risk assessment and how you can utilize this tool to understand the well-being of your employees.
