Oklahoma Certified Family Positive Workplace

What is an OK Certified Family Positive Workplace?

Organizations that respond to the realities of employees’ day-to-day lives will be ahead of the curve. The ‘as-if’ organization – the company that continues to operate as if its employees had no outside lives – will be history.

A family positive workplace or employer is one whose policies make it possible for employees to more easily balance family and work, and to fulfill both their family and work obligations, Thus, an employer might offer flexible work schedules and locations, child care, support for elder care, family leave options, and other family-positive benefits to employees. 

Family positive workplace practices benefit employers, families and society. Research shows that employers gain in employee recruitment, retention, loyalty and productivity, all of which contribute to the bottom line. Families gain in the ability to balance work and family obligations, reduced stress, and better quality of family life and life in general. The society gains because family-positive policies lead to more stable families with time to contribute to their communities, and better outcomes for children.

Potts Family Foundation with its interest in advancing Family Positive Workplace Practices is working with the Oklahoma Child Care Resources & Referral Association and Sunbeam Family Services to offer a special program/presentation along with ideas on how to enrich support for employees with young children.
