General Mills is closing its on-site child care at headquarters

General Mills is ending on-site child care at its Golden Valley headquarters on Sept. 30, the company told employees last week.

Demand for the benefit has dropped as employees work a hybrid schedule in and out of the office. The day care is just a quarter full, General Mills said in its announcement, leading to increased costs.

General Mills' child-care center is licensed to care for up to 60 infants, defined as up to 16 months old. The company also offered the on-site child care as an emergency backup for employees. That benefit is also ending.
