Daimler made comprehensive family benefits a cornerstone of their talent strategy to become an Employer of Choice by 2020. To achieve this, Daimler needed to partner with a child care provider who could offer nationwide coverage in addition to a custom on-site center. They chose KinderCare Education at Work to build a custom on-site child care center and answer the child care needs of their dispersed workforce.
Daimler partnered with KinderCare to build a beautiful on-site center, First Gear Academy, on their campus. With views of Portland’s downtown waterfront and room for 118 children, First Gear quickly reached capacity. Daimler then offered their employees Priority Access and Tuition Benefit, providing waitlisted families and its national workforce assistance with dedicated placement and tuition savings at any KinderCare Learning Center across the country.
