What Every Employer Needs to Know
Employed Caregiver Survey
This confidential, web-based survey process produces an executive summary and a longer report, which defines the scope and needs of employed caregivers and makes recommendations for assistance. To access the survey, a person representing an employer (e.g., a person in a Human Resource Department or an Extension county educator) first completes and submits
the registration form found on the National eXtension website.
You may also view a video that describes the survey.
