Employee Friendly Workplace

Enhancing work-life balance integration to successfully attract and retain the best employees in the Fox Cities.

WHAT IS THE EMPLOYEE FRIENDLY WORKPLACE INITIATIVE?

The Fox Cities Employee Friendly Workplace is an initiative focused on enhancing work/life integration for all employees by encouraging the adoption of more employee friendly workplace practices and policies. It’s a collaborative effort between businesses and community organizations, led by the Fox Cities Chamber of Commerce, for the primary purpose of creating a supportive work environment and attracting and retaining top talent in the region. Partners in this initiative include United Way Fox Cities, Child Care Resource & Referral, First Five Fox Valley, and PBS Wisconsin.

An employee friendly workplace provides a competitive advantage in retaining and attracting talent, increasing employee productivity and reducing absenteeism.  Employee friendly workplace policies and practices foster a supportive work environment which improves employee engagement and encourages employee loyalty. Developing a positive employer/employee relationship results in success and growth for all.
