Family-Supportive Workplaces: Resources for Sacred Sector Employees

Access a new resource from Families Valued, an initiative of the Center for Public Justice. This resource is derived from CPJ’s latest research and thought work about family-supportive workplaces. Our research emerges from engagement with the sacred sector - for-profit and nonprofit organizations who express a religious character in their mission, history, or leadership - though offers a framework that both sacred and secular institutions may find useful. Employers and employees alike will find helpful sample principles, practices and policies that equip workplaces to align their mission and values, and build strong families in the process.

Called to Care: Honoring Elders and the Family Caregiving Journey 

Just as a parent’s time with a young child is critical and irreplaceable, so too is the season of care at the end of life. Elder care is a weighty vocation that requires the full support of families, congregations, workplaces, and the government, especially as the United States becomes an aging society. A potential care crisis looms on the horizon where an increase in elder care recipients will collide with a decreased pool of caregivers.

This report identifies major types of care journeys through the stories of elders and their caregivers, offers a moral and practical case for supporting family caregivers. Exploring the various institutions–the Church, the workplace and the government–we see how each has an important role to play  in contributing to a family’s ability to care. Finally, this report offers recommendations for workplace and public policies that respond to the unique needs identified in the three common care journeys. Providing care for an aging loved one is a core Christian value, a critical responsibility for families, and the most cost-effective method for providing elder care for American society.
