Quarles & Brady’s Naples Office Receives Family Friendly Business Award from NAFC04/26/12
NAPLES, FLA. - The national law firm of Quarles & Brady LLP announced that the Firm's Naples office received the 2011 Family Friendly Business designation from the Naples Alliance for Children ("NAFC"). The Naples office has received this honor consistently since its inception 14 years ago.
NAFC's Family Friendly Business designation recognizes local businesses who exemplify a family friendly workplace by meeting established criteria. Family policies and benefits in the workplace are becoming crucial to men and women when they evaluate employment opportunities and also to employers who compete for working parents in the labor market. Employers are now called upon to create a work environment that meets the expanding and challenging role of the working parent. Family Friendly workplace programs payoff in dividends by attracting and retaining the best employees, increasing productivity, increasing employee morale, reducing turnover, absenteeism and tardiness, and reducing health costs related to stress. This year, 29 businesses were honored at the 2012 Celebration dinner in March.
Naples Alliance for Children is a private, charitable, nonprofit, 501(c)(3), volunteer advocacy group, organized in 1987. The organization is committed to working for 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 encourage preventive investment in children before they get sick, drop out of school or get into trouble.
