2023 Business Symposium
Join us for a deep dive in examining the impacts the lack of childcare has on business, our community and your bottom line.
The 2023 Business Symposium is designed to engage industry executives and community leaders across the state of Nevada in analyzing the return on investment of supporting family-friendly workforce policies and the effects of early education on Nevada’s workforce and economic growth. Through informational sessions on Nevada’s economic outlook, current workforce issues and family-friendly policies to increase recruitment and retention, you will expand and deepen your understanding of how early care and education intersect with your community, your business, your employees, and Nevada’s economic vitality.
Nevada Employer Childcare Development
Not all employers can offer on-site childcare, but there are many options for businesses to support their employees’ work-life balance. This project assists businesses in designing a meaningful benefits package and creating a culture that embraces and supports working parents. The days of “work comes first” and “family comes second” are gone. The workforce of today seeks a sustainable work-life balance that prioritizes family-friendly employers.

45F: The Employer-Provided Child Care Credit
