THE HERCULEAN JOB OF
A WORKING PARENT

The term “working parent” has a completely different meaning now than it did even four months ago. Parent. Teacher. Daycare provider. Extra-curricular activity instructor. Twenty-four-seven emotional manager for angsty teens.

For many, that’s all on top of a full-time job. Even setting aside the logistical challenges, the emotional toll is immense: It’s a Herculean task that’s near-impossible for those without children to comprehend. 

Our job as a leaders is to understand the challenges facing our  employees clearing paths for them to excel at their jobs. 

And while a number of large corporations have recently flexed their financial muscles with new, expensive perks for workers with kids–Amazon now subsidizes emergency child and adult care, Goldman Sachs offers employees 10 days of family leave–you can still support your staff on a limited pandemic budget. 

How? By getting creative. “Company leaders have to listen, have empathy, have patience, and be creative about developing practical solutions to help working parents through this time,” Brian Christman, father of three teenagers and chief people officer of New York City-based freight and transportation company Transfix, tells Inc. “Make sure you keep communication lines open.”

Read our story to learn three great low-cost (or no-cost) ways to support your employees with kids–because those staffers need your help, perhaps now more than ever.


DID YOU KNOW?

🏠 DID YOU KNOW? 
Zoom for Home – DTEN ME
Zoom has become the de facto standard for online communications during the pandemic, but the company has found that it’s still a struggle for many employees to set up the equipment. The company’s answer is an all-in-one communications appliance with Zoom software ready to roll in a simple touch interface.

🏠 DID YOU KNOW?
The prospect of a Tesla Inc. factory in the Austin area has moved a big step closer to reality, after Travis County commissioners on Tuesday approved tax breaks the electric vehicle maker requested that are worth a minimum of about $14 million over 10 years if Tesla invests $1.1 billion here.

🏠 DID YOU KNOW? 
Might want to add another face mask to your collection. On July 14, Austin Public Health issued new rules for individual residents that extend the city’s face covering order to mid-November. 

🏠 DID YOU KNOW?
Boeing’s 737 Max may return to the Skies
Airlines are wary of the model, which has been grounded since March 2019, but the fuel-efficient, narrow-bodied plane is well suited to the short domestic trips that are predominant in pandemic-era travel. And buyers have leverage to negotiate big discounts.

🏠 DID YOU KNOW? 
Business takes the lead on face masks 
Walmart said it would require its customers to wear masks, making perhaps the strongest statement yet by corporate America on what has become a political flash point.
