Elliott Davis honored as a North Carolina Family-Friendly 50 Firm

CHARLOTTE, N.C., August 19, 2014 – Elliott Davis is honored to be named as one of the top 50 family-friendly companies in North Carolina by Carolina Parenting, Inc. This honor recognizes the firm’s commitment to providing employees with opportunities, benefits and programs that contribute to long-term career fulfillment and career/life balance.

“We are proud to be recognized as a leading family-friendly firm in North Carolina,” stated Chief Human Resources Officer, Bob Wilson. “Elliott Davis exists for the purpose of positively impacting our clients, our people and our communities. We believe strong families are essential for achieving that purpose. All of our policies and programs to provide flexibility, work/life balance and wellness are designed to enable our people to live that purpose at work and at home.”

Elliott Davis offers employees an excellent benefits package, including career development, competitive compensation and a generous personal leave program that includes paid parental leave for birth and adoption. A wellness program encourages employees and their families to strengthen their health and well-being, and various savings options encourage financial health, including a college savings plan to help parents plan for their children’s future.

Carolina Parenting Inc., which owns Carolina Parent, Charlotte Parent, and Piedmont Parent, has highlighted family­friendly North Carolina companies for the last 15 years. To be considered for this award, companies must submit information about employee benefits and programs along with employee testimonials documenting the company’s exceptional measures to help employees find a balance between work and family life. Senior associate directors from the undergraduate and graduate business programs at UNC Kenan-Flager Business School in Chapel Hill review this information, and the final list of honorees is determined in partnership with the business school.

2014 Family-Friendly 50 companies in North Carolina will be recognized at the Moms@Work Conference in Charlotte on September 26. There will also be a feature story on Family-Friendly 50 companies in the September issue of Charlotte Parent.
