Quarles & Brady’s Naples Office Receives Family Friendly Business Award from NAFC04/15/14
NAPLES, FLA. — The national law firm of Quarles & Brady LLP today announced that the firm’s Naples office has received the 2014 “Family-Friendly Business” designation from the Naples Alliance for Children (NAFC). Quarles’ Naples office has received this honor each and every year since the NAFC began recognizing local businesses 16 years ago.
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 higher productivity; better employee morale; reduced turnover, absenteeism and tardiness; and reduced stress-related health costs.
This year, 27 Collier County businesses, including Quarles & Brady, were so honored at the 17th-annual NAFC Celebration dinner held on Monday, April 7, 2014 at the Artis-Naples Daniels Pavilion.
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.
