Maintaining a healthy balance between career and family is a challenge for working parents, especially during these tough economic times. But family-friendly companies know that employee satisfaction has a direct impact on a company’s bottom line. Companies that strive for a family-friendly culture with flexible hours, generous benefits and creative solutions for working parents are rewarded with low turnover and loyal employees who are committed to the company’s success.

For the past 13 years, Carolina Parenting Inc., which owns Charlotte Parent, Carolina Parent and Piedmont Parent, has recognized North Carolina companies with strong commitments to work-life balance.

These outstanding employers, comprised of large and small companies, should be applauded for their family-friendly policies and benefits that make it possible for working parents to manage their careers and spend time with family.

Carolina Parenting Inc. is pleased to announce the N.C. Family-Friendly 50 companies for 2011, selected in conjunction with the UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School. Information about each company’s family-friendly offerings is available at the links below. Companies opted to participate by providing information about benefits, programs and services after being nominated.
