These surveys just keep getting worse and worse. These types of things are going to create a massive hole in the labor force, and destroy our ability to create a diverse work environment.

Since the pandemic started, almost half of working parents (40 percent) have had to put the breaks on their , either voluntarily reducing their hours (25 percent) or quitting entirely (15 percent), according to a FlexJobs survey of more than 2,500 parents with children 18 or younger living at home.

How many parents work for your organization? Could you afford to lose 15% of them completely, and have 25% reduce their hours? If it happened, what would that do to the rest of the workforce?

We might want to be thinking about this very seriously.
