Power Home Remodeling, a leading national full-service exterior home remodeler based in Chester, Penn., and No. 13 on Fortune Magazine’s 2023 “100 Best Companies to Work For,” announced on June 30 that it expanded benefits offerings to include subsidized childcare for employees and their families.
The company said the new benefit would offset the cost of child care by 40%, providing employees up to $5,000 annually for child care costs, in a news release.
“This is a proud day for Power that has been many years in the making,” said Power’s co-CEO Asher Raphael. “We’ve seen over and over the crippling burden that childcare costs have on young families, resulting all too often in women leaving the workforce.”
To provide this new benefit for parents, Power is partnering with TOOTRiS, a large, comprehensive nationwide childcare benefits platform that offers:
- Instant access on any device to search, vet, tour, and enroll your child in quality child care programs – seeing real-time availability of openings
- 200,000+ licensed child care providers across all 50 states, covering all types of care, including full-time, backup, after-school, summer camps, and more
- 24/7 concierge support to help parents find the specific care they need
“We’re proud to partner with a company like Power, [that] shares the same commitment we have at TOOTRiS; to provide a better experience for parents — especially women — so that they don’t have to choose between work and taking care of their children,” said Alessandra Lezama, TOOTRiS CEO and select member of the ReadyNation CEO Task Force on Early Childhood.
“This partnership not only provides Power’s employees with access to reliable and affordable childcare options, it also supports human capital and future growth,” Lezama added.
This offering is the newest in a suite of benefits that supports women and families at Power, including increased infertility coverage, adoption and surrogacy support, and a more inclusive parental leave policy.
It also follows the company’s rollout of a travel and lodging reimbursement policy for those seeking medical care out of state just before the overturn of Roe vs. Wade last year.
“This is a national problem begging for government action, but until that happens, large and small businesses need to step in and fill that void wherever possible,” Lezama said. “We’re excited to implement this benefit and ease the burden for our employees, but remain steadfast in finding opportunities to expand upon it with additional resources to help Power families.”
In addition to being a Fortune 2023 “100 Best Company to Work For,” Power has also been recognized as a “Best Workplace for Parents” by Great Place to Work.
