Maven Clinic

Workplace access to culturally humble healthcare is no longer a preference—health equity has become a necessity. Health equity is when every person can achieve their full health potential without being marginalized because of socially determined factors.

HR professionals shoulder the essential responsibility of pursuing health equity for their employees from a holistic lens—including their lives outside of work and the families they have at home. Companies that want to demonstrate their commitment to comprehensive Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives must look beyond the workplace to a view of health equity that supports employees’ families and personal lives. Benefits that support employees’ family journeys are empowering and impactful, making them an essential aspect of DEI.

This session will cover the current women’s and family health landscape, focusing on specific gaps and what happens when barriers to care are removed with specific examples from Maven research.

Dr Wendy Whittington, Chief Care Officer, 


The challenges of caregiving affect not only the individual and their family, but also their employer, and ultimately the larger U.S. economy. In fact, employers lose an estimated $44 billion in revenue annually due to decreased productivity and turnover related to caregiving. The impact of caregiving on the workplace can no longer be ignored. Caregiving typically requires 24 hours a week, and about 60% of caregivers have jobs outside the home. As a result, 61% of those caregivers reported at least one work-related consequence, such as arriving late, leaving early, taking time off, or retiring sooner than planned.

In addition, caregivers are one of the fastest-growing employee population groups within an organization. On average, 73% of employees in a company are caregivers, whether for an aging loved one, a child or another family member. In addition, women are three times as likely as men to quit their jobs to take care of a family member, and many are part of the "sandwich generation," where they are caring for both parents and children. These employees need proper support and resources so that they have the same access to opportunities in their careers and are not having to take a backseat to their professional development due to their caregiving responsibilities. 

The financial, physical, mental and emotional stresses caregiving can put on an individual are drastic, and employers have a role to play in mitigating the caregiver crisis our country is in right now. This session will dive into these stress points, the cost of inaction that employers and HR professionals need to understand if they do nothing, its larger impact on the country's economy, and strategies for how to broach solving these challenges.
