Family caregiving is an issue that affects the vast majority of Americans in some way. Most fall into one of these categories: they are caregivers now, have been in the past, will be in the future or will need care themselves, (source, AARP). Of today's 40 million family caregivers, 24 million are juggling caregiving responsibilities and employment. Estimates show that businesses lose about $33.6 billion in productivity each year because of caregiving issues. As our population ages, this loss of productivity will continue to grow. What can employers do to address these issues? Participants will leave with strategies for recognizing and supporting employees’ needs, and tips for improving productivity and fostering a stable and healthy workforce. The speakers each bring a unique perspective to the conversation: Tiffany Speas is a professional in the Aging field and a caregiver for her grandmother. Anne-Lise Gere, SPHR through her HR consulting work with Senior Care companies across the country, has developed a keen expertise in the field of senior care and aging in place.


Tiffany Speas, MSM

Tiffany Speas, MSM has an amazing job! Everyday she works with dedicated professionals to improve the lives of seniors in our communities. She does all the things a CFO does like strategize, analyze, and practice participative management. She’s also blessed with the opportunity to lead the areas of Finance, Business Planning, Budgeting and Human Resources. All of those things are exciting and interesting, but she thinks the best part of her role as CFO is that at the end of every day she goes home and shares with her family how much of a difference they made in people's lives through PAA’s programs and services. What could be better than that?
