We are proud to be a major sponsor of the first national study launched today asking working parents and carers across Australia to provide feedback on how workplaces could be made more family friendly and gender equal. The survey covers a range of important issues including parental leave support, flexible work needs, child care and overall challenges experienced when managing job and caring demands.
The aim of the survey is to gather new evidence about how Australian families are balancing work and care and what is needed to improve the juggle. Survey outcomes will be used to inform policies and programs needed to create more inclusive, family friendly workplaces.
Grainne O’Loughlin, Karitane CEO, comments “The struggle of the juggle is very real! Parenting can be stressful and with the added pressures of working it can have a profound impact on the individual as a parent and also as an employee. Have your say and help us to design innovative solutions that support parents in the workplace.”
We encourage families of all shapes and sizes to participate! For more information on the importance of the survey and to complete it visit http://www.aplen.pages.ontraport.net/NationalWorkingFamiliesSurvey2019
