Event description

Description

Imagine a North Carolina where:

  • Businesses attract and retain the best talent.

  • Employees have access to workplace benefits that support their family, especially their children’s healthy development.

  • Our next generation workforce has the skills and knowledge to succeed.

At the Family Forward NC Summit, we will explore how to achieve this vision by supporting and inspiring employers across the state to increase access to research-based, family-friendly practices—big and small—that improve workplace productivity, recruitment and retention; grow a strong economy; and support children’s healthy development.

The Family Forward NC Summit is for employers and business and community leaders who want to attract and retain top talent, support child health and well-being, help close the skills gap and support future workforce development. Participants will leave with the knowledge and tools to start or continue conversation and action about benefits within their own organization.

A detailed agenda is coming soon. In the meantime, we encourage you to sign up for our e-newsletter or read and download our Guide to Family Forward Workplaces.
