Corporate welfare designed for the family: parenting support

Welfare aims to be a system of social protection and economic support, to guarantee the well-being and safety of individuals within society .

It may include a range of services and programmes, which aim to provide assistance in health, education, social assistance, social security, unemployment and other basic needs.

The main objective of welfare is to promote social equity, reduce inequalities and ensure that all members of society have access to dignified living conditions.

To achieve these objectives, it is therefore essential that corporate welfare takes care not only of the youngest, but also of their future as a family.

In fact, we have already talked about welfare dedicated to young people , but not about young families...

Welfare for parents

Corporate welfare to support parents focuses on programs and benefits that help employees balance their work commitments with family responsibilities, particularly those related to parenting.

Some examples of corporate welfare initiatives for the family may include:

company nurseries

Some companies offer daycare services or partner with nearby facilities to make it easier for employee parents.

Hourly flexibility

The possibility of flexible working hours or telecommuting can help parents better manage their family responsibilities.

Parental leave

In addition to the maternity and paternity leave required by law, some companies offer additional paid leave or benefits for parents who face special family needs.

Psychological support and counseling

Provide psychological support or counseling services to address parenting challenges.

Financial benefits

Financial assistance programs, such as grants for children's education or discounts on parenting-related services.

Family events and activities

Organization of corporate events or activities involving employee family members, promoting a more inclusive and supportive work environment.

Supports for education and culture

Health care

These initiatives can help improve the well-being of employees who are already parents and/or about to become parents, consequently increasing job satisfaction and promoting a more constructive and positive corporate climate.

Obviously, corporate welfare to support parenting is also a key factor in attracting and retaining talent in a competitive job market.

Euty: welfare to support the family

Specifically, the Euty app is a concrete tool capable of helping people deal with the small, big changes in daily life , including parenthood.

In fact, it is aimed at everyone, offering answers through training contents, bureaucratic procedures, advice, indications and specific services, all collected in modules that represent the different "stages of life".

A Welfare Coach is also always available to listen and provide personalized support.

Gaining awareness and receiving support in times of need helps to make life "easier", allowing you to reduce stress levels and promote personal satisfaction.

Welfare for parents with fragile minors

The term "fragile minors" refers to children and adolescents who find themselves in situations of particular vulnerability or risk, often due to personal, family or social difficulties.

These situations can vary greatly and include different contexts, such as:

difficult family situations

Fragile children may come from families with problems such as abuse or neglect, domestic violence, extreme poverty or family instability.

Health problems

Children with serious illnesses, disabilities or complex medical conditions may be considered fragile minors.

Abandonment situations

Children who are abandoned or lack adequate family support are often considered fragile.

Traumatic experiences

Minors who have experienced traumatic events, such as war, natural disasters or violence, may be considered fragile due to the psychological effects of such experiences.

Socio-economic problems

Children from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds, with limited access to resources such as education, adequate medical care or developmental opportunities, may be considered fragile.

Risk of abuse or exploitation

Children at risk of sexual abuse, labor exploitation or other forms of violence may be considered fragile.

Migrants or refugees

Migrant or refugee minors, especially if separated from their family or without adequate support, can be considered fragile.

The identification and support of fragile children often involves social services, educational institutions, health facilities and other organizations dealing with the welfare of children.

Protecting the rights and well-being of vulnerable children is a priority in many societies and requires a holistic approach that considers the different facets of their needs and circumstances.

Euty, to best support parents and families in times of difficulty, also includes a module dedicated to parenting and - in detail - for the protection of fragile minors and in case of learning deficits.

Euty is the only service that allows the user to make informed welfare choices, offering answers to everyday questions and guiding them to the best solution for that specific need.
