Working Parent Survey 2020


Catapillr working parent survey

In our second annual working parent survey, we again spoke to working parents to understand the pressures they are facing in managing their home & work lives.  The pandemic had made this balancing act much harder, a theme reflected throughout the survey results.

In addition to overwhelming support for employers to offer the Childcare Cash Advance Scheme, the key findings were:

  • 63% reported that the pandemic had made it financially more difficult to raise their children.
  • More than three-quarters of all respondents felt their employer could do more to help with childcare costs.
  • 86% are interested in a new employee benefit to help pay for childcare.
  • 80% would like the new childcare benefit to be offered in a similar manner to an interest-free season ticket loan.
