When employees experience a breakdown in family care, they usually have no option but to stay home from work and utilize their sick or vacation time to care for their loved ones. CorporateCARE Solutions has announced this week it will provide this much needed service of sick & back-up care for children and adults for companies throughout the U.S. with 1-100,000 employees.
Family care breakdowns leading to employees’ absences cost U.S. businesses up to $12 billion annually. CorporateCARE Solutions partners with employers to provide sick & back-up child and adult care as a benefit for their employees. This employee benefit helps ensure employees no longer have to stay home unexpectedly to care for family members. Employers benefit from decreased absenteeism and increased corporate morale.
CorporateCARE Solutions makes it simple for the employee to schedule care quickly and easily with the CCS state of the art website, user-friendly mobile app or 24/7 call center. CCS has a unique approach to this very specific industry. Most children and elderly dependents are not comfortable being cared for in an unknown environment and most parents prefer to leave their children in familiar surroundings. CCS provides care only in-home or wherever the loved one is located.
Sharon Lurtsema is the Founder and CEO of CorporateCARE Solutions. She began providing professional child and adult care services in 1992. After owning and operating a successful care agency for many years, Lurtsema set her sights on providing an exceptional level of corporate care on a broader national scale and launched CorporateCARE Solutions.
Lurtsema is passionate about helping working families resolve breakdowns in child and adult care as quickly and seamlessly as possible. “Employees don’t have the opportunity to recharge their batteries when they utilize their sick and vacation time to care for their families,” she says. “We come to the client, alleviating the need for the employee to stay home by providing the compassionate care and undivided attention they would expect from a friend or family member. For working families trying to maintain a healthy work/life balance, this makes all the difference.”
