HOW DOES MY BUSINESS APPLY TO BE AN OKLAHOMA CERTIFIED FAMILY POSITIVE WORKPLACE?

Each Certified Family Positive Workplace has three levels of certification: Commitment, Achievement (Attainment), and Distinction. The Certified Family Positive Workplace criteria and scoring may vary by category (Workplace Flexibility, Child Care Services, Family Services, and Direct/Indirect Services). There are different elements listed within the application for each category, and the applicant will use a check mark to denote the elements that are currently being implemented within the business.

We are currently accepting applications for the 2020 Oklahoma Family Positive Workplace Certification cycle.  The application can be filled out below.

A list of definitions for certain criteria are also available here.
