It's not for companies to sort out employees' childcare needs, but rather to make sure that companies engage with childcare services providers that can help employees.
There is a company called Parental Choice that does just that.
Their services range from simple childcare searches to tailored corporate packages.
They work with a large network of educational and psychological specialists that can go into a company to have a one-to-one chat with a parent whose child is suffering from, for example, bullying.
Fundamentally though, Parental Choice is an example of a company that is trying to make a difference to employees through their employers, which has a benefit not only on the working parent but also financially for the employer.
Companies like Parental Choice are the first step toward supporting employees with childcare responsibilities; whether this is a family, a single mum or a divorced dad.
