About the Guide

Our goal is to build a community of employers who are inspired to support the health and well-being of our state’s current and future workforce. The Guide to Family Forward Workplaces details research-informed benefits that positively impact child health and well-being and provide a positive return on investment for employers. In addition to information about each policy and its impact, we’ve provided sample policies, case studies from North Carolina employers and concrete steps for how to get started when implementing new policies or enhancing existing ones.
