Replacements, Ltd. again named one of top 40 most family friendly companies in North Carolina
GREENSBORO, N.C., August 31, 2007 – For the ninth consecutive year, Carolina Parenting, Inc. (Carolina Parent, Piedmont Parent and Charlotte Parent magazines) today named Replacements, Ltd. as one of the
N.C. Family Friendly 40, the top Tar Heel businesses noted for putting families first and making life easier for working moms and dads. The magazine singled out specific companies whose philosophies and policies support parents trying to balance work/life demands.
“This recognition is truly special to us, because commitment to family is one of our core values,” says Jeanine Falcon, Replacements’ vice-president of human resources. “As a family friendly company, we’re committed to supporting our associates when it comes to making family a top priority, whether that means flex time, adoption benefits, generous leave time and attendance policies, or many of the other programs we’ve put in place based on feedback from our working parents. Keep in mind, here at Replacements, 'family' means many things, and all families are accepted and celebrated.”
A recent survey conducted by Carolina Parenting ranked flexibility as a top benefit in making a workplace a great place to raise children. Traditional benefits such as medical plans and vacation/sick time ranked as 'must have' or 'important' while having a supportive boss also rated among the top factors.
Carolina Parenting has selected Replacements for this honor every year since starting the
N.C. Family Friendly 40 nine years ago.
