Caregiving in the Workplace Survey
Council on Aging of Southwestern Ohio
Suzanne Burke, President and CEO
The Council on Aging of Southwestern Ohio launched the Caregiving (COA) in the Workplace Survey to help our region’s employers quantify the impact an aging population has on their employees. We believe this is the first time a survey like this has been undertaken in our region.
Messer Construction helped the COA pilot the survey early in 2019 and since over a dozen employers participate with nearly 1,000 employee survey respondents. The data collected through the survey mirrors what is happening on a national level. The current impact on Greater Cincinnati businesses is staggering.
The COA is a nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing quality of life for older adults, people with disabilities, their families and caregivers. We promote choice, independence, dignity and well-being through a range of services that help people remain in their homes for as long as possible.
