Family benefits policies are more important than ever, according to a new survey from Maven, a family-planning organization that works with companies to provide reproductive and family benefits to their employees. Their survey of 1,100 employees and 600 HR professionals showed that almost two-thirds of employers are planning to expand family benefits offerings within the next three years, as 87% of them believe family benefits are highly valued by employees. And for good reason: according to Maven’s data, more than a third of employees have left or contemplated leaving a job with poor family benefits, and nearly two-thirds have missed out on work due to family health concerns.

“The lines between ‘home’ and ‘work’ are increasingly blurred,” Mary Ainsworth, the EVP and Chief people Officer at Medallia, says in the Maven report. “The best employers are ranking family-friendly benefits as an essential component of their value proposition. Medallia’s family-friendly benefits are integral to our efforts to create a more diverse and inclusive culture.”
