Over 60% of working parents use relatives, friends, or nannies as a primary source of childcare. When those options are not available parents typically are forced to spend company time searching for an alternative or taking the time off themselves, in fact the average cost of absenteeism for these parents are 8 – 9 days per year. These breakdowns in care that lead to absences cost businesses 3 billion dollars annually in the US. Companies with child care services were able to reduce the number of absences by up to 30%.
