Tyson to Offer Childcare at the Humboldt, TN Plant


Tyson Foods will offer subsidized child care for workers at a new processing plant to be erected in Humboldt, TN.  Termed Tyson Tykes the center will open in 2023 and will support 100 children with a staff of 18. 


The initiative follows a recent program offering child care to second-shift workers at an Amarillo, TX. beef plant.  Tyson awarded $400,000 to a Boys and Girls Club to modify the facility to be suitable for young children.


Child care has emerged as asignificant cost factor for workers at plants. Availability of company-provided or subsidized service will encourage return to employment and loyalty thereby alleviating labor problems in many areas of operation and will become more common in the future.
