öogo for Companies
"Childcare is becoming a strategic advantage for employers.”
– Harvard Business Review
Childcare is increasingly considered a business issue that influences where people chose to work. Employers that provide high-quality childcare solutions will not only differentiate themselves from the competition but will all create a sticky benefit that fosters retention.

How öogo Benefits Companies?
Provide meaningful support to working parents. Making sure parents have appropriate childcare solutions is often more meaningful than sending more vouchers for online meditation.
Our workplaces do not adequately accommodate the demands of childbearing and child rearing.Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Researchers at Cornell University have found that the availability of Childcare reduces staff turnover by up to 60 percent.
1 in 3 mothers have considered leaving the workplace or downshifting their careers because of COVID-19.McKinsey Women in the Workplace Report 2020
Increase productivity by solving Childcare challenges for individual situations which has a positive impact on wellness.
…Since COVID it increasingly feels like “you can have a Job or a Kid. You can’t have both.”New York Times
Become a recognised leader in workplace equality.
Women are 40% more likely to be negatively impacted in their careers by childcare challenges than men.Melinda Gates
Getting the öogo edge
At a time when there is a global labour shortage, hold onto your employees by offering flexible, suitable childcare solutions.
Addressing the negative impact of childcare related stresses on your workforce increases productivity.
Next generation parents are increasingly attracted by jobs that offer meaningful work-life balance.
Achieve True Equality
As we continue to make meaningful advancements in global equality at work, not addressing childcare challenges will lead to the undoing of 30 years of progression.
Many company leaders underestimate the impact childcare challenges are having on their workforce. Tell öogo how many employees you have and learn the likely impacts within your organisation.

Minding & Mentoring
As part of the öogo Club package we are pairing up families with students who seek mentoring for their careers from one of the parents.
We source local students who are flexible and can partner up with a family and, as part of the agreement, the relevant parent agrees to ‘Mentor’ the student, which can include help with CV’s, introductions and networking, insight into the industry, tasks and assignments from the workplace, referrals etc.
We have partnered with COVID Interns to deliver solutions across the US, UK and Ireland and are expanding our reach all the time.
"I was about to give up my job until they found me a student who wanted to work in the events sector and lived close by.”
Clodagh, Mum of 2, Founder @ Events Firm
We believe effective supports that assist flexible work and childcare will provide an edge compared with competitors as we look to hire new talent.
We engaged öogo because we had just lost a very strategic senior hire after a long recruitment process to childcare challenges. Since the appointment we have found öogo consistently goes above and beyond and my own son has developed a new love of coding thanks to the great Inspirers and their courses on öogo Interactive
We have found öogo to be professional, innovative and (and I mean this in the best possible sense) simple. We didn’t have any onboarding or implementation headaches, the öogo team made it incredibly easy
