YOU CAN SUPPORT YOUR EMPLOYEES’ CHILD CARE NEEDS. WE CAN HELP.
Business leaders across Vermont, in diverse industries and sizes, have told us that your ability to thrive depends on your employees’ ability to show up. Yet thousands of Vermont families can’t find or afford child care. When employees don’t have child care, employers struggle to recruit and retain the best workforce. Vermont business leaders understand the value of innovation and investment. Let’s work together to ensure that every family has access to child care so that your businesses grow and our economy can thrive.
