The program encourages new mothers or fathers to return to work sooner by allowing parents to bring their infant to work with them.

"This would allow a new parent to bring their infant to work up to age 5 months, and we're just very excited. We think that will have a lot of benefits for our staff,” Jill Keppers, executive director of Duluth HRA, said.

She said this new program will help employees return to work sooner after a baby's birth, lower health care costs and save money on childcare. The Duluth HRA has 62 staff who could benefit from this program.
