One of the biggest upfront barriers to the broad adoption of paid family and medical leave (PFML) is cost. And, while the benefits of PFML are often cited in relation to improving the security and health of workers and contribution to the economy, its impact on the bottom lines of businesses is often overlooked.
On September 7th, Panorama, an action tank working to further paid leave adoption in the private sector, partnered with the American Sustainable Business Council (ASBC) for an online discussion and Q&A on the business impacts of paid family and medical leave. Emily Hall Warren, director of administration at W.S. Badger Company, joined as a guest to discuss her company workforce supports. The conversation centered around Panorama’s newest resource for U.S. business leaders, “Understanding the Business Impacts of Paid Family and Medical Leave," which explores how, and why, the returns from PFML vary across companies.
