Quarles & Brady’s Naples Office Receives “Family-Friendly Business” Award03/30/16
NAPLES, Fla. — The national law firm of Quarles & Brady LLP today announced that the firm’s Naples office has received the 2016 “Family-Friendly Business” designation from the Naples Alliance for Children (NAFC). The Naples office has received this honor every year since the NAFC began recognizing local businesses 18 years ago.
The NAFC Family-Friendly Business Awards acknowledge local businesses that put family first. The designation recognizes businesses according to established criteria, including workplace policies and programs that assist employees in raising their children. Family-oriented policies and benefits in the workplace are often critical factors in the evaluation of employment opportunities, representing a competitive advantage to employers who need to compete for highly qualified members of the labor force. Family-friendly workplace programs pay dividends by attracting and helping to retain the best employees, leading to higher productivity; better morale; reduced turnover, absenteeism, and tardiness; and reduced stress-related health costs.
This year, 30 local businesses, including Quarles & Brady, were honored at the NAFC Annual Celebration Dinner held on Monday, March 28, 2016, at the Daniels Pavilion at Artis—Naples.
Naples Alliance for Children is a private, charitable, nonprofit, 501(c)(3), volunteer advocacy group organized in 1987. The organization is committed to working and providing for the needs of all children and families. They advocate for change in policies and practices through public awareness, community organization and network building, and they encourage preventive investment in children before they become sick, drop out of school, or get into trouble.
