Today’s workers have more options for where and when they will work, and these two factors together create a challenging landscape for employers.  Low unemployment creates a competitive environment, making it difficult to recruit and retain talent. Seeking a recognized family friendly designation is a great way to gain a competitive advantage and position your business as an employer of choice.
