The report, Tackling Childcare: The Business Case for Employer-Supported Childcare in Myanmar, was produced by IFC’s Gender Business Group. It contains the findings of the Tackling Childcare Study which found that when companies support their employees to balance their childcare responsibilities with their work obligations, there are many benefits. The findings are intended to provide recommendations for Myanmar businesses on how to better support the needs of working parents and to realize the business benefits of employer-supported childcare.
The report was produced in partnership with the World Bank Group's Umbrella Facility for Gender Equality (UFGE), a multi-donor trust fund administered by the World Bank to advance gender equality and women's empowerment through experimentation and knowledge creation to help governments and the private sector focus policy and programs on scalable solutions with sustainable outcomes. The UFGE is supported with generous contributions from Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Latvia, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
