In January 2019, Joseph Fuller and Manjari Raman of Harvard Business School’s Project on Managing the Future of Work released a report called The Caring Company: How Employers Can Cut Costs And Boost Productivity By Helping Employees Manage Caregiving Needs.

Fuller and Raman, who interviewed 1,500 employees and 300 HR leaders and business owners, found that:

  • A third of employees surveyed who left a position reported taking care of an elder with daily living needs as a reason for leaving their job.

  • The most significant factors that contributed to workers quitting were: the unaffordable costs of paid help (53%); the inability of finding trustworthy and qualified paid help (44%); the inability to meet work responsibilities due to the increased caregiving responsibilities (40%).

  • Four out of 10 caregivers find themselves in high-burden “sandwich” situations, as they juggle a career, childcare and eldercare responsibilities.

American businesses can lose as much as $34 billion each year due to employees' need to care for loved ones 50 years of age and older. According to AARP, hidden costs to employers include the estimated tab of $6.6 billion to replace employees who quit or retire early. In addition, employers may be losing an estimated $6.3 billion because of workday interruptions as employees arrive late, leave early and take time off during the day because of caregiving responsibilities.
