Frequently asked questions
- Why a crèche?
- What is the employee benefit?
- What is the employer benefit?
These questions can be answered by being aware of what is happening in South Africa currently. The Employment Equity Act requires more and more females to be employed in all companies. There has further been a continuous rise in the number of divorces in South Africa , and increase in the number of single parents in the work force. Family dynamics are changing and we see more and more single dads raising small children. All of the above would also be true for these single dads . These three situations have created certain unique situations within the South African work force, where parents have to find places they can trust to leave their children during working hours, and these places tend to be closer to home more often than closer to the workplace. As any working parent knows, that crèches are very strict on collecting kids at certain times, as well as the time companies lose when sick children need to be collected taken to the doctor or hospital, this can easily take a day out of your employees time.
Further, there is an amount of "Brain Drain" happening in the workforce, as woman are being educated and trained, but in a lot of companies, as soon as they are having children, opt to stay home, as they have no place secure and trusted they want to leave their children during the day, and companies are losing vast amounts by recruiting and training replacement personnel.
We are aiming to create an environment where parents can be assured and at peace that their children are close enough at hand, that if they do need to check on them, that no time is lost to the company. Parents can be more relaxed in the workplace knowing their children are in capable hands, being cared for, educated and stimulated.
So if you want to create a harmonious working place for your employees, ensure that your staff turnover drops, productivity goes up because your parents have peace of mind since their children are happy, and happy children make happy parents.
