High Point Regional Health System Chosen Family-Friendly
High Point Regional Health System was again chosen as one of the Family-Friendly 50 companies in North Carolina by Carolina Parenting, Inc., publisher of Piedmont Parent magazine.
"We are extremely honored to be recognized as one of the top family-friendly companies in the state,â€ said Katherine Burns, vice president at High Point Regional. â€œAs an organization, we are committed and dedicated to providing work-life balance to our greatest asset, our employees."
High Point Regional was chosen based on a number of examples which allows employees to be the best at work and life. For example, High Point Regional offers a retail pharmacy to employees and their family members. This allows employees to conveniently have their prescriptions filled in-house at a discounted price. Also, employees have the opportunity for on-site child care. In addition, High Point Regional's working mothers who are breastfeeding have access to an on-site lactation station.
The selection process started with a nomination form. Companies were then contacted to gather additional information about their benefits and work environment. The Carolina Parenting N.C. Family-Friendly 50 Companies of 2009 were selected in partnership with UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School.
