Fortune 500 Companies Tap Primrose for Employer-Sponsored Child Care
Now more than ever, companies are seeking ways to set themselves apart to attract and retain top talent. Leading Fortune 500 companies like Procter & Gamble (P&G), Chevron U.S.A., the Apache Corporation and more are looking to Primrose Schools, an early childhood education industry leader, for the solution.
With more than 35 years of expertise in providing high-quality early education and care, Primrose is growing its network of nearly 400 schools from coast to coast with a business strategy specifically designed to help companies provide on- or near-site child care for their employees.
Primrose on PremiseSM, the employer-sponsored child care extension of Primrose Schools, was officially announced in May 2018 after the successful launch of two employer-sponsored schools with P&G in Cincinnati in early 2017. These innovative programs have experienced a combined occupancy growth of 32 percent under Primrose management.
“We considered the quality of the curriculum, progression of children’s development, professionalism of the staff and flexibility of the operations,” said Bill Sontag, Senior Manager of Human Resources for Sales & Marketing at P&G North America. “The quality of the interface between the center, teachers and parents was paramount. We felt Primrose excelled in all those areas, which ultimately became the key factors behind our decision.”
While gaining momentum in the employer-sponsored segment of the child care industry, Primrose continues to capture the attention of Fortune 500 companies. Many of these companies are facing the same challenges:
- They need to improve their employee benefits to recruit and retain top talent.
- They want to provide a premier child care offering to their employees and their employees’ families.
- Other child care providers lack the financial and operational flexibility and innovation they desire.
Uniquely suited to solve these challenges, Primrose on Premise continues to grow across the country, starting in Midland, Texas. The next employer-sponsored location, Primrose School of Apache Corporation, is set to open in December 2018, and Primrose also broke ground on another Primrose on Premise school in collaboration with Anadarko Petroleum Corporation, Chevron U.S.A., Occidental Petroleum Corporation and EOG Resources Inc., which is expected to open in early 2019.
Primrose rises to the top for companies considering employer-sponsored child care because of its flexibility, premier reputation, the proven results of its research-informed Balanced Learning® approach and its commitment to service excellence. By choosing Primrose on Premise as their employer-sponsored child care provider, these companies affirm their commitment to their employees and culture, as well as to nurturing a healthy future workforce through high-quality early childhood education.
