Announcing the Top Family-Friendly Companies of 2013

Work-life balance has been a hot topic this past year, from Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead to Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer banning working from home — after starting as the top executive while pregnant.

Closer to home, parents who want to return to the workforce or change careers still face a tough job market, and balancing a career with family life can be especially challenging when employees are worried about staying competitive at work.

For 15 years, Carolina Parenting Inc., which owns Carolina Parent, Charlotte Parent and Piedmont Parent, has recognized North Carolina companies that are committed to helping employees balance the often-competing demands of work and family life.

To be considered for this year’s N.C. Family-Friendly 50 award, companies submitted information about employee benefits and programs and employee testimonials. All information was reviewed at UNC Kenen-Flagler Business School, with the 50 selected companies determined in partnership with the school.
