October is National Work and Family Month
National Work and Family Month is an annual designation observed in October. During this time, businesses across the U.S. are asked to promote healthier and more flexible work environments. The goal of the campaign is to remind employers about the business benefits of supporting work-life effectiveness programs. Today, families come in all forms and structures. Between work, family, and personal life, we all face many responsibilities every day. Finding a healthy balance among them all is important. Let's support families by creating work environments that recognize families come in all shapes and sizes.
