If you have younger workers who have or plan to have children, you should look at how you support new moms. According to a new survey, many employers aren’t doing enough:
- 68% of 2,000 working mothers say lack of time to pump at work and/or the stress of pumping enough at work are significant challenges.
- 65% say they feel challenged getting milk home to their babies.
- Under half (40%) say their company has a dedicated lactation space or room with a locking door. Only 28% say this space is comfortable and well-furnished.
- Over a fourth (26%) say they have no space at work to pump. One respondent says she has resorted to pumping in a shower stall.
