Balancing Career and Caregiving in Asia – The Role of Companies


This research examines the drivers and opportunities for companies to support employees in their care responsibilities – be it for children, ageing parents or family members with disabilities or long-term health conditions. Based on interviews with over a dozen local experts, it highlights how addressing the needs of caregivers is critical to wider efforts to promote gender equality and enhance employee wellbeing. This research presents:

  • Business case for supporting employees in their role as carers​
  • Local market context in five markets including China, Hong Kong, India, Japan and Singapore​
  • Nine corporate case studies showcasing what companies are doing in the region​
  • Recommendations for companies


The study has been made possible thanks to Dell Technologies, HSBC and Uber.
