What Are The Advantages And Disadvantages Of A Corporate Nursery?

Setting up a company nursery is beneficial for both employees and the company.

For employees

For parents and employees, the company nursery has several interests:

  • Travel time from home to work unchanged (saving time)
  • Crèche hours adapted to employee schedules
  • Obtaining a place for the child made easier
  • Less stress
  • No problem with the type of childcare
  • More simplified return from maternity / parental leave
  • Less worry of knowing the child nearby
  • CAF help
  • Tax reduction
  • Price equivalent to a municipal crèche
  • Better work-life balance
  • Possibility for mothers to continue breastfeeding

For the company

Companies setting up a company crèche can be helped financially and fiscally: family tax credit , deductibility of charges (therefore lower taxes), single service provision , help from the General Council, CAF, etc.). The other advantages for companies are as follows:

  • Increased productivity
  • More invested and efficient employees
  • Employee loyalty
  • Reduced delays
  • Less extended parental leave
  • Reduction of absenteeism
  • Reduction in turnover
  • More attractive company
  • Image of the valued company

Disadvantages for parents

Although the corporate nursery has many positive sides, as parents, you should think about the following:

    • Professional life closer to family life (is seeing your employer or a colleague in a place that concerns your personal life disturbing?)
  • Proximity with the child which is reassuring but not necessarily favorable (risk of becoming too close)
