I see opportunity in applicant and employer matching. Think Myers brings on steroids. Glassdoor to the soul. Eharmony of job search. Psycological testing for both
Continuation from above, my pinkie loves the enter button. (MIght add "edit' button to interview question answer area.) Volunteer psycological personality testing for both current and perspective employees. Enabling matching of employers and team members to get the best combination of talent in the same place. In todays mindset it is possible some employers are missing potential star employees because of unitentional bias thinking on behalf of the hiring manager. Consulting with IO psycologist to build a univeral evaluation system would be a starting point.
This question is not what it seems to be :) I'd answer the following: 'First, I'd find out if there is an internal policy. I'd suppose that the company has a bunch of recommendations already in place, after all, I wouldn't be the only employee in this situation. Most people have family to take care of, in their lives at some point. Policies are very helpful Human Resource tools, perfect for mitigating the impact of the potentially stressful resource variables (for example life situations of the employees) on the daily life of the company. If there isn't, I'd sit down with my supervisor and the HR and work out something that works for both the company and me. It might happen that this would be a good start for an internal policy like this." ...get creative after saying this, because they'll most likely want to know what you'd include in this policy... :) What they want to know is more about how you handle big-impact changes (and hardly anything about your actual plans :) )
