"My team hasn't asked for eldercare support, why do I need Clutch? "

There is a good chance that your employees aren't telling you about their eldercare needs. 56% of employees tell a manager about their elder-caregiving experience and most managers don't communicate this to HR because they assume no solution is available.

A Leave of Absence and last minute PTO are the most obvious sign of need as many employees tell their HR team after work/life balance is no longer possible. Clutch can help reduce the frequentcy and advanced warning of a Leave of Absence."
