How to Retain Working Parents in a Small Business

The Growing your Team Podcast: Episode 221


Let’s face it: being a working parent is not easy. It’s like having two jobs that too often overlap, even when you try your best to balance both properly. 

This struggle often leads to many people leaving the workforce or reducing their hours once they have children. In many cases, that move isn’t what they want but what they feel they must do to avoid feeling like they are failing. And when that team member is also one of your top employees, their decision can significantly impact you and your small business. 

The good news is that there are things you can do to increase your ability to retain working parents—even as a small micro business. In some ways, the smallest businesses, those with one to 24 employees, are leading the way when it comes to showing what’s possible.

In this episode of the Growing Your Team podcast, we talk about how you, as a small business, can attract and retain working parents on your team.
