RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. — For the fourth consecutive year, RTI International has been selected as one of North Carolina's 2012 Family-Friendly 50 companies by Carolina Parent magazine.
The 50 employers were recognized for offering family-friendly workplace options and benefits that help employees balance work and family responsibilities.
Among the employee benefits for which RTI was recognized were having flexible work hours and lactation rooms for working mothers.
RTI also offers a parent's support group, new-parent leave options, adoption reimbursement assistance and a wellness program that provides health screenings and flu shots for employees and their family members.
“Providing working parents with the resources and assistance they need to balance their work-life schedules is a very important aspect of our business,” said Martha Roberts, senior vice president of Human Resources at RTI. “Supporting them allows them to be more successful at work and at home, and ultimately helps our business.”
RTI and the other winners will be recognized in the September issue of Carolina Parent, Charlotte Parent and Piedmont Parent, and online at www.ncfamilyfriendly.com. The winners will also be recognized at a special Moms@Work and Women@Work events in Charlotte, Durham and Greensboro.
The Carolina Parenting Inc. NC Family-Friendly 50 companies of 2012 were selected in partnership with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Kenan-Flagler Business School. Companies are chosen based on nominations and information provided by the companies about available health benefits, work scheduling options, child care and elder care, family support, family leave and other family-friendly benefits.
