Parent Promise/Prevent Child Abuse Oklahoma has been awarded certification as a 2020 Oklahoma Family Positive Workplace from the Oklahoma Family Positive Workplace Council and the Potts Family Foundation.

A family positive workplace or employer is one whose policies make it possible for employees to more easily balance family and work, and to fulfill both their family and work obligations, Thus, an employer might offer flexible work schedules and locations, child care, support for elder care, family leave options, and other family-positive benefits to employees. Family positive workplace practices benefit employers, families and society. 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 better quality of family life and life in general. The society gains because family-positive policies lead to more stable families with time to contribute to their communities, and better outcomes for children.

“We are very proud to receive this certification,” said Sherry Fair, Parent Promise executive director. “As an organization that works to help families build resiliency and hope, we know how important it is for employees to have work-life balance in order to reduce stress in the home and have a better quality of family life.”

Parent Promise joins other Oklahoma companies and organizations, such as Nextep, Inc., Sunbeam, Oklahoma City Zoo, Dal-Tile and Boeing in becoming a Family Positive Workplace and changing the way Oklahoma helps prepare for the future while taking care of current employees and their families.
