Why we're teaming up to support caregiving employees
We’re thrilled to announce our new partnership with New York Life Group Benefit Solutions, a leader in the group insurance market.
Through the partnership, we’re collaborating to offer our shared clients more timely and coordinated access to much-needed caregiving services and support. Together, we'll help more employers support and retain caregiving employees and improve workplace productivity.
Employee Benefit News interviewed Co-founder and CEO, Lindsay Jurist-Rosner, to learn more about why this partnership is so important:
“Caregivers live with a constant sense of uncertainty and a fear of the future. There are so many employees using leaves of absence for caregiving and this partnership provides a more comprehensive solution to employers. For some employees, leave is an option, but maybe it makes more sense for that employee to get some targeted support.”
In fact, 1 in 3 employees working with Wellthy say we helped them prevent taking a leave or resigning from their role. 9 in 10 say they were less stress/ more engaged at work, and 2 in 3 say they've missed fewer meetings or work days thanks to Wellthy's support. For employees who do make the difficult decision to take leave, Wellthy remains by their side — supporting the leave process and continuing to address their family's care needs while on leave.
