Tallahassee Family Friendly Employers
First, we’re glad you are here! The fact that you are interested in learning more about Family Friendly Employers says a lot about you. From the start we want you to know this program is put together by business leaders just like you, right here in Tallahassee. The Family Friendly Employers survey is designed to help you evaluate your organization’s performance while at the same time providing information and ideas on programs you can implement.
For this inaugural year, the local committee developed the survey below and a three-tiered award structure. The recognition ranges from three to five stars, depending on the overall score received from the survey. While three stars is the entry-point for recognition, businesses that receive a three star award are not 3rd place. These business are doing incredible things for their employees, going above and beyond legal requirements, and recognition at any level should be equally celebrated. Recognition at the four and five star level represent organizations who likely have long-standing programs that have grown over many years and are simply farther down the path at this time.
Lastly, because the Family Friendly Employers committee represents a diverse group of organizations spanning dozens of industries with 4 to 4,000 employees, we acknowledge this survey and program is not perfect. Please participate, however, and provide feedback so that we can strengthen the program going forward. While recognizing family friendly Employers is part of the program, the real win for us all is the start of a new conversation in Tallahassee.
