Brown U. Honored for Employee Work-Life Policies

Thursday, February 13, 2014

 

Brown University has received the Seal of Distinction from WorldatWork's Alliance for Work-Life Progress (AWLP).

The Seal of Distinction is awarded annually to companies across the country who demonstrate a commitment to helping their employees healthily and successfully integrate life and work. Brown University and the sixty-five other honorees will accept their awards at a luncheon at the AWLP Work-Life Forum in Baltimore March 20th.

Qualifying recipients demonstrated excellence across seven categories of "work-life effectiveness": caring for dependents, health and wellness, workplace flexibility, financial support for economic security, paid and unpaid time off, community involvement and transforming organizational culture. Brown was one of only thirteen colleges and universities selected amongst this year's winners.

"This year's Work-Life Seal of Distinction honorees are an impressive group of employers that clearly understand the business value of investing in the people who do the work," said Kathie Lingle, WLCP, executive director, WorldatWork's Alliance for Work-Life Progress. "It is especially noteworthy that a growing proportion of recipients come from relatively small enterprises across all sectors and a wide variety of industries. This trend underscores AWLP's premise that work-life effectiveness contributes to every organization's overall success, not just the big, well-resourced ones."
