Back to school, but not back to normal

Most schools plan to offer in-person learning this fall, but parents will still need to cope with new safety and isolation protocols, lack of after-school care, and general uncertainty. Your employees with children may need extra support from their co-workers and leaders in this time of transition.

Get proactive strategies for supporting parents, like:

  • Offering more flexibility on work schedules, locations, and deadlines
  • Helping parents recognize signs of struggle in their kids’ and teens’ behavior
  • Connecting parents and their children with professional mental health support
