Corporate Lactation Services

Why provide a Corporate Lactation Program?

The workforce is evolvingcorporate-boardroom.jpeg

Mothers are the fastest growing segment of the workforce. Providing lactation support enhances your employee health benefits package, as more than half of women with children under the age of 3 are employed, and over 70 percent of new mothers choose to breastfeed. New federal health care regulations supporting breastfeeding in the workplace have increased the popularity and need for corporate lactation programs. Furthermore, incorporating a lactation program can help your business to be compliant with federal and state lactation protection laws. Learn more about these laws here.

Breastfeeding education and support helps protect your company’s investment in staff through better employee retention. It keeps moms and babies healthier, reducing healthcare costs and missed work, and is good for business by reducing turnover and increasing company loyalty. Each employee's need for these services is temporary and diminishes quickly, but the benefits and improved morale that is generated last indefinitely.

Full support is key to employee happiness and retention. Providing new families with access to prenatal and postnatal education and lactation services is an effective way to show support, decrease sick time, and increase productivity and job satisfaction.

Here’s how supporting your breastfeeding employees increases your ROI:

  1. Reduced absenteeism: Breastfed infants are healthier, since human milk provides antibodies that protect them from common illnesses.

  2. Lower health care costs: Healthier infants mean fewer medical insurance claims.

  3. Return to work sooner: Support eases the transition back to work and enables mothers to return from maternity leave faster.

  4. Higher productivity and loyalty: Supported mothers show improved morale, higher job satisfaction, and retain a more positive image toward their company.

Supporting breastfeeding improves your overall image and makes your company more desirable to top-notch recruits. Corporate lactation programs have been shown to lower turnover rates, and mothers are more likely to return to work if they feel they have a supportive environment for continued breastfeeding. This, in turn, reduces the costs associated with replacing experienced employees.

Positive Public Relations

Supportive policies and practices that enable women to return to work and continue breastfeeding successfully send a message to all employees and the community that their company values the health and well being of their families. Many companies who implement corporate lactation programs have received local, state, and national recognition as well as media attention. Here are just a few examples of such companies: Employer Spotlight.
