Our favorite links from the week that we’ve shared across social media:
“Back-to-school time brings big schedule changes for families with working parents. They have to negotiate school pickups, extracurricular activities, half days, teacher meetings and more in the midst of their work duties.” — The upcoming school calendars include many days when school is closed and work isn’t – putting stress on parents and employers. We can help with safe, reliable on-site care at the office on those days.
Flexible Work Can Cause Even More On Working Parents: “Rather than jump into the idea of ‘flexibility will resolve your problem, you can work from home’, organisations can find more creative – and more effective – ways to take pressure off parents while still meeting company needs.”
An interesting article on How to Be a Traveling, Working Mom. Our big tip to add to the list? When planning to travel for a conference, ask if there will be on-site care. We work with conferences that are dedicated to making work + life fit easier for their attendees who depend on childcare services to attend the events that are most important to their careers.
And an exciting Flexable update: We have some exciting news to share – we made it to the semifinals of 43North’s $5 million startup competition! This would aid us in helping more parents access childcare when and where they need it! Learn more here.
And finally, we are hiring a Sales Development Representative!
