A Common Ground For Parents and the Kids
Says Juhn Teo, co-founder of Common Ground: “We are always open to helping out working mothers, either as an employee or a business owner.” When it comes to working mothers who are lactating, Juhn says that they have provided dedicated rooms to be used for pumping, as well as dedicated fridges to store milk. He also points out that since Common Ground has a few outlets, any employee can choose to work from the location that is closest to their childcare provider, reducing the stress of having to commute to pick up their kid at the end of the day.
With the time and energy saved, productivity levels may even increase with such an arrangement. In fact, Common Ground’s outlet in Ara Damansara even has a childcare centre within its premises. Curious Child is a fully equipped daycare centre that takes in children aged between two and six years old, and follows the Reggio Emilia educational approach.
