Why be a Family Friendly Employer?

Employers who establish family friendly policies and provide employees with the opportunity to achieve a healthy work-life balance benefit immensely. Family friendly working conditions are not only good for children, parents, and elders; they are in the best interest of employers and, ultimately, they benefit our larger community.
