I will go with C.
Permit ...to should be a right idiom.
"employers...will realize" makes a complete sentence.

C.

clearly the choices are between C and D. D is little awakward as it says "between the responsibilities of home and work".

so C wins.

Thanks for reminding the idiom "permit to". I did miss it.

More questions.

Which is better between "benefits which" and "benefits that" and why ?

Or are both allowed here without any difference ?
