Caregivers are perceived to be less committed to their careers than non-caregivers.
The culture of my organization is not as supportive as it could be around the career progression of caregivers.
Caregivers are reluctant to use available support at my organization because it may have a negative impact on their career progression.
In my experience people who are caregivers are less likely to progress at the same rate as their peers even if their input is similar.

“The rate of employee caregiving is increasing, which presents more challenges for employers. But employers have a unique opportunity to support employees in managing the continuum of their career related obligations in a way that can also reap rewards in the form of an engaged and productive workforce and an increase in employee loyalty”
