The Potts Family Foundation and the Oklahoma Certified Family Positive Workplace Council is committed to recognizing employers throughout the state who intentionally help their employees balance work and family responsibilities. As an extension of our focus on Early Childhood investment, we are ready to assist Oklahoma Businesses in this effort of helping their employees by developing and promoting Family Positive Policies & Practices.
Why attend the workshop? We’ll review the value that work-life balance offers employers, employees, families, communities, and Oklahoma’s future workforce! We’ll also discuss the Return On Investment for businesses and how that can produce a positive impact on the bottom line. The aim for this workshop is the “can do” or “I got this” feeling. We want you to walk away supported and ready to implement a family positive work environment in your organization.
Other areas of the workshop include:
» Policy review and building – policies that are considered Family Positive
» Work Schedules – Flextime, job sharing, telecommuting, being flexible at time of need
» Parenting – parenting tips, education, childcare resources, first five years of life
» Management – “learning to walk the talk” in support of Family Positive Philosophy
Recipients of the Family Positive Workplace Certificate are announced and honored each year at an annual event which includes the winners, OKHR members and other HR professionals, legislators, media, Oklahoma employers, and others interested in Early Childhood Development.
A family positive workplace is one whose policies make it possible for employees to more easily fulfill both their family and work obligations. 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 have a better quality of family life and life in general. Society gains because family positive policies lead to better outcomes for children and more stable families with time to contribute to their communities.
