As an HR professional, you are likely keenly aware of the child care crisis. Parents spend exorbitant amounts of money on child care, if they can even find child care in their area. Costs and constraints lead to large percentages of new mothers not returning to work, not because they don’t want to but because they can’t.
I recently spoke with Charles Bonello, an expert on child care, about the crisis and his company’s efforts to meet it head-on. He is the CEO of Vivvi, an organization that provides employer-sponsored on- and near-site child care in the New York City area.
