NC Early Childhood Foundation Launches Family Forward NC
The North Carolina Early Childhood Foundation launched Family Forward NC, an innovative business initiative to improve children's health and well-being and keep North Carolina's businesses competitive. By increasing family friendly workplace practices, business, families, and our state all win.
Through research and the exchange of ideas among business leaders, employees and organizations, Family Forward NC promotes workforce investments that support children's healthy development and a competitive business environment, both in the short and long term. That's a goal we can all rally behind.
Though the number of working families has risen dramatically over the last few decades, family initiatives have not kept pace. The immediate and long-term business advantages of these offerings are well-documented.
- Family-friendly workplaces provide a competitive advantage in attracting and retaining talent, increasing productivity and employee satisfaction and reducing absenteeism.
- Family-friendly practices support children's future academic and career success. These benefits all come back to business by building a strong future workforce.
