We know that creating a family-forward workplace takes courage and leadership. That’s why we’re celebrating the Oregon employers who are operating flexibly and making work work for their employees.
Every year, the Family Forward Education Fund facilitates the Alfred P. Sloan Award for Excellence in Workplace Effectiveness and Flexibility. The Sloan Award is a prestigious national award program that recognizes employers who are successfully building flexible workplaces that really work for their employees.
