Right now, your workforce probably includes more sandwich generation employees than you think with 1 in 5 employees reporting caring for both children and elders. That trend will only continue to grow as millennials, now 25% of this group, care for their aging Boomer parents.
Nearly 40% of sandwiched employees have left a job because it was incompatible with their family needs. And even at work, 47% have turned down a promotion because of caregiving responsibilities.
