The Fox Cities Employee Friendly Workplace is designed to help employers enhance work/life balance at your organization. A collaborative effort between businesses and community organizations and led by the Fox Cities Chamber of Commerce, the program encourages the adoption of additional employee friendly workplace practices and policies. Partners in this initiative include United Way Fox Cities, Child Care Resource & Referral, First Five Fox Valley, and PBS Wisconsin.
There are four levels of certification: Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze. Certification levels are determined by the organization’s ratings in four categories:
Employee paid leave and schedule flexibility to meet the needs of work and life demands including; vacation, illness and family illness, healthcare appointments; family care & other family commitments.
Employer-sponsored healthcare benefits and wellness programs to support and improve the well-being of the employee and the employee’s family.
Employer-sponsored benefits and programs that support the overall financial wellness of the employee for the goal of work-life integration.
Employer offered discretionary benefits often perceived as “unique” incentives.
