In this presentation, participants learned about the Employed Caregiver Survey developed and supported by the University of Wisconsin Division of Extension. The importance of understanding the impacts of caregiving on both employees and employers; the benefits of understanding and supporting caregiving employees; and the purpose of the Employed Caregiver Survey as a tool to understand and act on these needs were discussed. Additional information was shared on how to bring the Employed Caregiver Survey to your organization to use in engaging employers.

The webinar also shared information from the NE Lifespan Respite Network about their employer engagement efforts and the results of their initiative.
