Target Expands Childcare and Paid Family Leave Benefits as Retailers Battle for Talent
Posted June 25, 2019
Target announced it will strengthen its child care benefits and expand paid family leave for 350,000 part-time and full-time hourly employees across stores, distribution centers and headquarters.
"We've taken a strong position on minimum starting wages, but that's just one facet," Melissa Kremer, Target's chief HR officer, said in prepared remarks. Starting this fall, Target workers will receive 20 days of backup child care or elder care through a partner network. Employees will be able to bring their child to an in-network day care center for $20 a day or pay a subsidized hourly rate for in-home care.
