Family Friendly Business Policies

Final Copy 11123 Family Friendly Policies (dragged)

Hendricks County is facing a crisis largely impacted by the lack of affordable childcare.

The 2022 Community Needs Assessment, conducted by Hendricks County Community Foundation, reported that for 23.3% of respondents; it is "Hard to find affordable, high-quality early childhood education and/or childcare.” This issue jumped eight spots from the 2019 survey.

With the rising cost for childcare and limited available affordable child care facilities in our county, our Leadership Hendricks County capstone group decided to create a local resource to help businesses in our community address this challenge.

This booklet will guide your business as you consider implementing family-friendly policies to support working parents and recruit and maintain staff.
