Caregiving, whether it be for children or older relatives, can impact employees’ retirement security long into their golden years. In the latest Talking Benefits episode, the team talked with Craig Copeland, Ph.D., from the Employee Benefit Research Institute (EBRI) on the impacts of caregiving and how employers can help.

Caregiving touches on all facets of our world—from health care benefits and long-term care to retirement security, paid and unpaid leave, and flexible work arrangements.

The podcast episode takes a deeper look into:

-The demographics of a typical caregiver

-How employers can support employees who are caregivers

-How caregiving is impacting retirement security

-The impact caregiving has on mental, physical and financial health

-The broader impact of caregiving on the economy.

Every organization can benefit from a better understanding and support of caregivers. Give this episode a listen!
