Family Forward NC
COVID-19 Rapid Response Program
Family-friendly business practices such as paid leave, support for child care and flexibility are important now more than ever for employers to reopen and retool their businesses. These practices support business resilience and help keep children and families healthy.
Your COVID-19 response strategy can create a family-friendly workplace to make your business more resilient now and in the future. Hear from HR experts and gain access to resources and one-on-one support as you reopen/retool your business.
For two years, the North Carolina Early Childhood Foundation’s (NCECF) Family Forward NC initiative has worked to inspire employers with research, best practices, peer learning and more to increase the number of family-friendly workplaces and improve health and well-being for children and keep businesses competitive. NCECF is offering a timely webinar about the Family Forward NC COVID-19 Rapid Response program.
Together with Performentor—human resource experts who have deep experience in the hospitality and manufacturing industries—Family Forward NC will share resources and tools about how family-friendly workplace practices ensure safety at work and home, and why you should include them in your business to increase retention and recruit talent.
