Working Conversations Episode 117:
Full-Time Job AND Full-Time Caregiving?
Have you ever found yourself torn between the demands of a full-time job and the responsibilities of caregiving?
It is a question that we never would have asked prior to the pandemic.
But in today's rapidly changing landscape, the line between work and parenting has become increasingly blurred, presenting a complex and challenging situation for parents and their employers alike.
Just recently, I was training a group of new managers on managing in the remote and hybrid workplace and I got the following questions from one of the participants:
“Now that the worst of the pandemic is over, what are the expectations around doing work and childcare simultaneously?”
“Is it okay for people to be caring for their kids while they're working now?”
What a great question! In this episode, I delve into the multifaceted nature of navigating the realm of full-time work and full-time caregiving simultaneously. I explore the complexities, emotional toll, and logistical challenges that arise when blending the demands of work and caregiving.
Drawing from my expertise in workplace dynamics and personal development, I offer valuable insights and practical advice for those facing this unique balancing act.
So whether you find yourself personally managing the juggling act or leading a team of individuals in this situation, this episode is for you.
