March 15, 2022 — NEW YORK, NY. — Wellthy, a leading caregiving concierge for employers, today announced it has entered into an agreement with WTW – a leading global advisory, broking and solutions company that helps employers manage risk, optimize benefits, and cultivate talent. The agreement, designating Wellthy as a WTW caregiving support solutions provider, will enable WTW clients to access caregiving support for their employees and families.
The growing need for a transformational approach to caregiving support has been compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic and nationwide care shortages. A study from WTW found that “two-thirds of employers cite caregiving demands as the primary driver of employee stress” and most employers think their current caregiving programs are not meeting employee needs.
“Caregiving is an important issue for employers as it impacts so many critical business elements such as talent attraction and retention, diversity, equity and inclusion, as well as workforce productivity. In particular, many of our clients cite the need for caregiving support solutions to help them retain female talent, and Wellthy can play a role in meeting this need,” said Courtney Stubblefield, Solutions Leader at WTW.
Wellthy’s technology-enabled caregiving support helps employees who are caring for aging parents, neurodiverse children, spouses/siblings, or employees’ own complex, chronic conditions, focusing on high quality, affordable, and best-fit services and providers, while taking into consideration families’ unique cultural preferences as well as social determinants of health.
“With this agreement, we expect Wellthy will provide even more families with help building the family care infrastructure that employees require to stay in the workforce and thrive in their careers,” said Lindsay Jurist-Rosner, CEO at Wellthy.
