Staff Reporter, Dhaka : To support working parents and build a more inclusive workplace, MetLife Bangladesh has recently launched a Children Daycare center at its Head Office in Motijheel. Working parents of MetLife will now have access to a range of childcare options and the facility to keep their children in a safe and secure Daycare center.
Research shows that taking care of children is one of the major concerns for any working parents. According to a Harvard study, globally nearly 20% of working parents leave their work or reduce working hours solely due to lack of childcare.
Commenting on the initiative, MetLife Bangladesh’s Chief Executive Officer, Ala Ahmad, said, “At MetLife, we take care of our associates holistically. Family and children are essential part of our life, and the newly launched Daycare Center will provide MetLife’s working patents the confidence of knowing that their children are enjoying the workplace too.”
“We spend a lot of time at work, so it’s important for us to provide our employees with access to amenities that make their lives easier. That is why we wanted to introduce this daycare facility to provide working parents assurance and peace of mind”, commented Tauhidul Alam, Assistant Managing Director and Chief Human Resources Officer of MetLife Bangladesh.
