Even in a down economy, many employers recognize the need to provide benefits that help employees maintain their work-life balance, including flexible schedules, on-site daycare and more.
Carolina Parent, working with UNC Chapel Hill's Kenan-Flagler Business School, has released its 13th annual list of the top 50 family friendly companies in North Carolina.
"These companies understand the importance of treating employees with dignity and respect," said Carolina Parent publisher Brenda Larson. "They recognize that if you take care of employees, they will take care of your business."
Many companies use such lists as competitive tools when they're recruiting new employees. That's especially true for tough-to-fill positions in technology and elsewhere.
Cary-based tech firm SciQuest noted that it made the list because of its flexible work options, child care or programs for children, leave options and health care offerings.
“We want our employees to enjoy and grow in their careers here with us at SciQuest, and this placement is a nod toward SciQuest’s biggest and best asset: our hard-working and devoted employees,” said vice president of human resources Ann Thomas, in a prepared statement.
All the businesses will be featured in Carolina Parent's September edition.
