Support your staff with Charly Cares Business

How do you help your employees to be the best version of themselves? A good work-life balance is indispensable in order to excel in the workplace. With a babysitter at home, you can unburden your employees at times that finding reliable childcare proves challenging. The babysitter temporarily takes over care of the household, so that your employees can focus on work. This increases productivity, especially in a home environment. You can already arrange a business babysitter starting at €10,- per hour.

How does it work?

With Charly Cares Business, you can support your employee by (partially) paying for the babysitter. You can use the babysitting service in one of two ways:

1. By making a fixed contribution available per employee once or periodically. your employee can then simply use this budget to book a babysitter in the app.

2. If you want full flexibility, you can also let your employees book as need (up until a predetermined maximum). You will receive a weekly overview of all hours booked.

The advantages of Charly Cares Business:

  • Distinctiveness as an employer

  • High employee satisfaction

  • Increased productivity

  • No administrative hassle

  • Try it out flexibly

  • If you have sufficient space under the WKR discretionary scope, you will pay the 'regular' fee. For example: babysitter's hourly rate of €6,- means €6,- per hour for your organisation.
  • If you have insufficient space, you will pay an 80% final levy over the excess paid. The organisation pays this to the tax authorities at the end of the year. For example: babysitter's hourly rate is €6,- + 80% final levy means €10,80 per hour for your organisation.

Rody from Wundermart on Charly Cares Business:

“It was an initiative from us as employer. As HR manager, I am happy to have had the space to set this up. If you want to offer something to your people, you want to make it as simple as possible, and offer it in a way that suits everyone. Almost all our employees live in several cities, and we did not want to offer a different form of childcare in every city. The infrastructure of Charly Cares makes it easy to offer one solution to everyone.”

Hans Peter van de Poll - Director HRM, I&A and Facilities Havensteder

''We contacted Charly Cares during the second corona wave. The combination of working from home and homeschooling led to a lot of tension for colleagues with young children. We wanted to help out and saw a great opportunity to offer a form of relieve in the form of a ‘babysitter at home’. The response from our colleagues has been overwhelming and we have also received many positive reactions from others in our network. We hit the bull’s-eye with our collaboration with Charly Cares: a professional and entrepreneurial organisation with people who are able shift gears quickly and professionally.''

Renee van Brakel - Management Assistent Glasnost

''We at Glasnost think our employees’ wellbeing is incredibly important. In times when many work from home while also taking care of children, that is not always that easy. Charly Cares Business has given our employees a little more freedom and room to breathe! With our business account, we can help our employees with ease during these difficult times.''

Marjolein Heijstraten - Director Performance & Rewards Deloitte

'' Within Deloitte the wellbeing of our people is our priority. We understand how hard it can be to combine work with being a parent (and a teacher), all at the same time. It’s all about finding the right balance. Within Deloitte the day care option is applicable for children who are in elementary school or daycare.

Deloitte employees are very happy with the option offered and they have been helped with it. In particular, they indicate that this is a good option because it enables them to do their work in a more balanced way. And also that it is nice that, in addition to a babysitter from Charly cares, they can also have their own - trusted - babysitter via Charly Cares.''

The media on the business babysitter

At home with a business babysitter: De Volkskrant visited the Koert family, who book a Charly Cares Babysitting Angel through their employer. For RTL Nieuws, Hidde de Vries described the problem every parent is facing during the lockdown. He mentions Charly Cares Business as a potential solution.

Our corona policy

We follow the RIVM and GGD guidelines and ask all our Angels and parents to take their responsibility to keep the children, and each other, healthy. We ask them to comply with our corona policy, so that our babysitting service can continue to unburden parents responsibly, especially now.

A reliable babysitter

As a parent you don't just invite anyone into your home, we understand that all too well. That is why we screen our Babysitting Angels personally and run a double reference check. Parents also leave a rating and review after each babysitting service, so that we can continue to safeguard the quality of our service and so that parents can leave without having to worry.

Frequently asked questions

Will the babysitting credit be considered wages for my employees?

If there is room under the WKR (work-related costs scheme) and if the conditions for using the WKR are met, then you can designate it as ‘eindheffingsloon’. As a result, you can reimburse your employees tax-free and the babysitting credit will possibly not be considered wages. If there is no room under the WKR, then it could be that the babysitting credit is considered as (extra) wages and the usual wage costs will have to be paid. We advise you check with your financial department, or an external administrator or tax specialist.

Do my employees need a Charly Cares membership?

Before your employees can book a Babysitting Angel, they need a membership. They can choose between 3 memberships. Based on their babysitting needs, they can choose the membership that fits them best. The employer pays for the monthly membership.

Is Charly Cares Business available everywhere in the Netherlands?

Yes! As an employer, you can support every employee with a company babysitter. Charly Cares is active in 57 places across the Netherlands. Employees who do not live in any of those can easily add their current babysitter to our platform.
