Thread regarding AT&T layoffs

In order to attract more talent and create a

Employee friendly environment for women ATT should build on site day care centers at large office complexes. It would enhance the upward mobility of women.

The day cares are already here, before the rona and everyone working from home.

I would walk through the 2020 areas and see all the little children not accomplishing a thing. But they were collaborating and trying to make the others think they have some knowledge.

If you are wanting the company to provide your day care, they probably are, and you are in it...

great idea for starting and growing families but there too many risks and liabilities involved with this idea.

I don't understand the guys going on about free daycare. Where did the original post say anything about it being free?

The days of "large office complexes" are over. Remote work is here to stay, T is already looking to unload office space.

This coming from a younger person, the same group that tells the "old timers" to get over the takeback of 5 vac days, and removal of retiree health benefits? The corp. owes us nothing but a paycheck, but you want free child care?

GTFOH! What kind of parent would trust Toxic-T with their child? Are you F*ck'in C R A Z Y?

I guess you want Toxic-T to payoff your college loans next?

Get back to work or better still - go submit your resume somewhere else. I should turn you in to the Child Protection Department!

Oh no. Otherwise you'd have to provide for your own children like the last generations always had to. My wife quit work to take care of our 4 kids.
Cafeterias, work from home, day cares, vax mandates, etc.
Are todays workers really that soft and helpless?
Or just demanding and lazy.

The added burden to Corporate Real Estate for onsite daycare is enough to quickly shut this idea down. I have seen the remnants of a former call center (80's, 90's?) that had a room set aside for daycare. So it has been tried before. CRE now has cleaning services maybe a couple of times a week in many locations. Just think of the daycare cleaning requirements that a normal parent would expect.

Kids under 5 don't qualify to be vaccinated, and are unlikely to be good about wearing masks.

Childcare is a much more complex problem than it used to be, factoring in that we are in a pandemic. Bad enough before, now, often impossible.

Likely, a fair portion of the "Great Resignation" quits were due to childcare issues, that your suggestion would nominally help relieve, but the fact that Omicron is even more contagious, and very young kids are little sn-t factories with notoriously poor understanding of hygiene mean that childcare is not going to be feasible in congregate settings for a while yet.

But, sure, once the pandemic subsides, and kids can be vaccinated for COVID along with their other vaccinations, it would be a good for worker retention for the larger offices to offer subsidized congregate childcare.

Really easy to spot the Boomers in these comments.

My last company had an on-site daycare. A perk they loved to tout during the recruitment stage. Then once you were hired the facade crumbled: the waiting list was over a year long for infant spots, the monthly cost was more than comparable off-site centers (unless you were SVP or above. They had a subsidized rate. Make that make sense.), they closed early on Fridays but you still had to be at your desk for those two hours (I guess with the baby hanging out in your cubicle with you?)...

On-site daycares can be great if they reflect the reality of an employee's workday and salary. Otherwise they're just an exercise in marketing bu-----t for the talent acquisition team.

Free day care is only for senior execs. Their time is valuable and thus it's to the company's benefit that they be productive. Same reason we fly them around on private jets.

We can't have the rank and file getting to cushy and entitled. Remember, they are here to work, not be lazy and entitled.
