Divorce is an emotionally difficult and disruptive force in the lives of millions of people, and managing the complexities before, during and after divorce can impact productivity at work – not just for the employees immediately impacted but for their co-workers and teams as well.

A survey from Good Housekeeping in partnership with co-parenting app SupportPay found that 70% of the workforce is impacted by divorce at any given time, and employees going through a divorce frequently experience work-related disruptions including long-term lost productivity (81%), increased absenteeism (73%) and a decline in health and financial wellbeing (67%).

That’s why SupportPay launched what it said is a first-of-its-kind employee benefit that is designed to help working parents navigate some of the complexities of divorce.
