Nine out of 10 parents who have access to employer-subsidised childcare say it made it easier for them to return to work after birth or adoption, according to a new report.

The report, based on a survey of over 1,800 working parents who have access to Bright Horizons’ family support solutions through their employers, including sponsored nursery and back-up care, compares with an earlier survey of 3,000 working parents who don’t have access to family supports through their employer, shows those with access to employer-sponsored care rate their employer 20 percentage points more supportive of family. 85% said employer-sponsored childcare helps them attend a place of work and four in five say the care enhances their productivity.

The report also found that 53% of parents have seen their hours at the office increase in the past year with 65% now working more than half of their time in a central workplace. 76% of those with increased office working said they had upped their childcare as a result.

Jennifer Liston-Smith, Head of Thought Leadership at Bright Horizons, says: “We can see that by providing employees with access to meaningful and inclusive family supports, all parties can enjoy the benefits of all ways of working, including being together face-to-face. Employees with access to family support report higher levels of productivity, enhanced performance and improved employee wellbeing, engagement and retention…The world has changed, and employers must move to support their employees’ evolving needs if they want to continue to attract, recruit and retain talent.”
