Allstate, Deloitte, IBM, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and Texas Instruments – as members of the American Business Collaboration (ABC) – funded the development of the program along with Ceridian and made it available to their employees on April 6.
The ABC and Ceridian collaborated with the Family &
Workplace Connection to identify childcare providers and
elder care services with the capacity to deliver backup
caregivers, according to the company.
The result is a national database that includes caregiver
resources for children and elders, in addition to
well-care and mildly ill care.
The locator provides employees with information on alternative childcare providers and elder care services, and offers a wide array of caregiver resource information on services including childcare centers, family childcare providers, facilities that care for mildly ill children, in-home care agencies for children and elders, adult day care and assisted living facilities, and off-hours providers for weekends and evenings.
Ceridian ( www.myceridian.com ) is a human resources management firm.
