Quarles & Brady’s Naples Office Receives Family Friendly Business Award from NAFC04/02/13
NAPLES, FLA. - The national law firm of Quarles & Brady LLP announced that the firm's Naples office received a 2013 "Family-Friendly Business" designation from the Naples Alliance for Children ("NAFC") on March 20. Quarles' Naples office has received this honor consistently since its inception 16 years ago. The office also was one of three local businesses recognized in the 2013 "Innovation Award" category for their low-cost, innovative programs that create a happy, family-friendly workplace.
NAFC's Family-Friendly Business designation recognizes local 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 increased productivity; better employee morale; reduced turnover, absenteeism and tardiness; and reduced stress-related health costs.
This year, 27 businesses were so honored at the 17th-annual NAFC Celebration dinner, including Quarles & Brady.
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.
