It’s no surprise that a rising number of employees are reporting burnout from the demands of work and home, especially as a rapidly aging population requires increased levels of care. According to the Family Caregiver Alliance, just 56% of caregivers make their work supervisor aware of the duties they are fulfilling at home.
At Alkermes, we are committed to proactively recognizing and supporting our employees’ well-being and responsibilities in all aspects of their lives. We believe this approach helps enable our colleagues to bring their best selves to work each day.
