Work/Life Symposium

Employers and their employee caregivers face significant challenges balancing work with caring for a loved one.
Join Impact Broward as it hosts HR and business executives, policymakers, and caregivers to:

  • Hear first-hand accounts of the impacts of caregiving.
  • Learn how flexible HR policies can lead to increased employee retention, improved productivity, and share holder gains.
  • Discuss public policies that enable caregivers and employers to thrive.

 Agenda

  • 8:00am – 9:00am – Registration and Breakfast Networking
  • 9:00am – Welcoming Remarks
  • 9:10am – Panel: Finding Balance for Today’s Working Caregiver
    • More than 44 million Americans today have a second unpaid job as a caregiver for a family member. What economic and emotional tolls does the working caregiver face? What is the “Sandwich generation”? How does South Florida’s system of support compare nationally? Answering these and other questions will be leaders from South Florida’s caregiving community and health and human services agencies.
  • 9:50am – Panel: The Business Case: Retention, Productivity & Profit
    • Businesses like Deloitte, Qualcomm, and Facebook all have recognized that an employee’s responsibility to care for a disabled child, a terminally ill spouse, or an aging parent should not prevent that employee’s success at work. What are the creative HR solutions employers should consider in supporting these employees? Do the benefits outweigh the costs? Will they lead to stronger recruitment and retention? Answering these and other questions will be leaders from small to large businesses in South Florida.
  • 10:30am – Panel: The Public Policy Outlook
    • From local government expanding leave policies to national and state caregiving coalitions advocating for supportive legislation, there is a real movement to address the important needs of caregivers. Which public policies should be prioritized? Who are the stakeholders driving change? What advocacy efforts work? Answering these and other questions will be leaders from local, state and federal government, advocacy organizations, and caregiver coalitions.
  • 11:10am – Keynote Presentation
  • 11:30am – 12:00pm – Networking Break
  • 12:00pm to 1:30pm – Lunch
    • Remarks
