In this rapid and dynamic world, both parents are forced to work in order to provide their children with the best of everything, which has resulted in a decrease in parental care for the children. Parents are now seeking jobs in organizations that provide child-care for their children. About half of the working families need child-care for their children. In the last decade, women have been working more than before. When employees are worried about their children, their productivity falls, and days of being absent can increase when their children feel ill, or if there is no one to take care of them while the working day time.During the last decade, many things have changed. Before there was a concept of a traditional family, where the father was in charge of providing the family financially and the mother looked after the kids and the house. This is no longer possible now. Nowadays, nearly 65 percent of women are expected to work and provide the family needs. With both of the parents working and spending the day time at work, their minds stay away from the work environment and they spend a long time thinking about their children, how they feel, have they had their food and are they feeling safe without their parents near them.There have been lots of debates going on, whether employers should provide child care services for their workers or not. Studies have shown that employees, who have kids, can face lots of family problems, which could lead to more times being out of work and doing less work than expected. This is because employees, especially females, when not finding a suitable option for their children, chose to drop off the workforce. When employees quit, the company suffers and could face a big loss. Eventually, all these problems cost the company more because of the time that the person spent training before actually doing the job. Employers have now started to think broadly about the long term effects of providing child-care for their employees.
