49% arrive to their place of work late, leave early, take time off. 15% take a leave of absence, 14% reduce their hours or take a demotion, 7% receive a warning about performance or attendance, 5% turn down a promotion, 4% choose early retirement, 3% lose job benefits, and 6% give up working entirely.
Caregiving has shown to reduce employee work productivity by 18.5% and increase the likelihood of employees leaving the workplace.
More than 1 in 6 Americans working full-time or part-time report assisting with the care of an elderly or disabled family member, relative, or friend. Caregivers working at least 15 hours per week indicated that this assistance significantly affected their work life.
They report missing an average of 6.6 workdays per year, which amounts to 126 million missed workdays each year across the U.S.
