If you are a working parent experiencing anxiety about your child’s college admissions and seeking guidance on teenage relationships in such a situation, you’ve found the perfect source. Let’s collaborate and strategize for a promising future together.
College admissions present a vital stepping stone
For most families, navigating the teenage years for their children is difficult for both parents and children alike. College admissions, career preparation, and more all make this time a vital (and stressful) stepping stone for a family – especially in the uncertainty of a post-covid world. Working parents are faced with a multitude of challenges each and every day, especially following the COVID-19 pandemic. Whether they’re a single or two-parent household with one or more children at home, the pandemic illustrated the extent to which family and work overlap, creating an environment where working parents in the United States have been more stressed than they’ve ever been before.
As innovative companies adapt to this new reality for their employees, one trend that has emerged is that success lies in the ability to see and support employees and their families as a unit. With this, it has become important for companies to build personalized benefit programs around the unique needs of employees and their families. This ultimately has the ability to impact family well-being, and employee productivity, and drives companies’ ability to recruit, retain, and inspire the best talent in the market.
We learned that little had been studied or written on the direct impact that college & career planning decisions have on a teen, family, and community, so we are excited to help find the answers to better understand these important issues at Empowerly.
This study explores college & career planning today, what it means for working families, and how it impacts organizations as a whole.
