More than 50%

Adults have at least 1 ACE

HIGH ACE SCORES

more prevalent among adults under age 65

impact our current workforce

especially working Kansans

with lower levels of education &

earning lower annual incomes

increase the likelihood of

academic failure by 3x

result in increased workrelated

injury, absenteeism &

decline in individual worker

productivity that costs employers

$147,000 over each lifetime

Mitigating the negative economic consequences of this developing

workforce requires employers to create FAMILY FRIENDLY

WORKPLACES (FFW). Proven FFW strategies include:

→→

ACCESS TO QUALITY CHILDCARE

→→

FLEXIBLE & CONSISTENT WORK SCHEDULES

→→

PARENTING SUPPORTS

→→

ACCESS TO JOB TRAINING & DEVELOPMENT

→→

PAID PARENTAL LEAVE

Kansas Power of the Positive is a coalition helping employers understand the needs of

people who are not engaging effectively in the workplace because of family struggles.

The Coalition will help employers meet these needs in a data-driven, strategic way to

attain goals such as retention, recruitment and productivity.
