Chamber Releases Supporting Working Families Study

Sponsored by the San Diego Foundation, the San Diego Workforce Partnership, and the Neighborhood House Association, the Chamber released its Supporting Working Families Study on January 13th. Through a survey of 400 local businesses, the Chamber team assessed employer sentiments around the importance of childcare and a variety of programs that are aimed at helping working parents. Notably, almost 90 percent of employers support working parents as a high priority, and many indicated an interest in learning more. The report identifies three recommendations for employers to support working parents that come at very little or no cost.
