Strengthening family friendly companies and raising the bar for working parents.
ECN's vision is for every company to become employee centric; by providing resources, non-medical benefits and policies to their employees throughout all life stages. By allowing employees to create harmony between work and life, they will become more dedicated and productive employees, which in turn, will pay dividends to businesses and create a better workplace for all.

We formulate key improvements to immediately start earning employee trust and building the brand of your company as a parent friendly employer.
Our goal is to meet your company where you are and collaborate on the best way to tackle current and foreseeable roadblocks faced by women and primary caregivers.

We are a one-to-shop for companies when determining what resources to bring into their workplace.

We offer thoughtful and prioritized recommendations and when appropriate, connect them with our verified and trusted partners to implement specific solutions.
Why is parent/caregiver a category of employee I need to think about?
With 73% of employees being responsible for some type of care giving (and 41% are primary parents), it's critical to company's success that they calibrate their benefits, programs and culture to accommodate employees with care giving responsibilities.
Over 86% of working mothers will leave a job for another opportunity that better supports their work and life considerations.
Isn't one benefit enough?
Implementing one or two benefits for your employees, outside of the standard medical benefits is a great start, but there is so much more to being a caring company.
One of the biggest myths in today's company culture is that employees should be satisfied with one or two "extras" such as a lactation solution or backup childcare. In reality there are many other life situations that require a bit extra support.
How will my company benefit and isn't this really expensive?
When employers invest in their workforce, specifically caregivers, the value of that investment pays dividends in attraction, retention, diversity of thought, reduced absenteeism and higher productivity.
When you offer a benefit across your entire employee population, not everyone will use it and that's OK! These are intended to be used by employees who need them, when they need them.
What types of solutions do you offer?
Each solution and company is different, but we offer it all directly through ECN or made possible by our trusted partners. We address everything from infertility benefits, lactation solutions (permanent or temporary) & resources, backup or regular childcare solutions, disabled/elder dependent (s) financial planning and care assistance and much more.
How do you measure success after implementation?
We work with companies to put measurement practices and feedback loops in place to show the value of investment for their business both short term and long term. We also cultivate a deep and lasting relationship with your company so as you need to be agile with your business, we will continue to support you as your needs evolve.
