In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, family-friendly workplace policies are more critical than ever for minimizing the economic impact on working parents, especially women and people of color. OCC is proud to share that we have earned the Dallas 2021 Best Place for Working Parents™ designation in recognition of our family-friendly policies and practices, reflecting our commitment to working parents and, by extension, their children. Creating an inclusive and welcoming environment for working parents is part of OCC’s Diversity & Inclusion Value and ensures OCC continues to attract, retain and develop talent with a wide range of backgrounds and perspectives.
The Best Place for Working Parents™ designation is presented by Best Place for Kids!™ and is part of a community-driven campaign, first backed by Fort Worth, Texas Mayor Betsy Price and the city of Fort Worth, which has extended to other major cities in Texas and is supported by philanthropic foundations, nonprofits, business leaders and experts in childcare and childhood education. Through a self-assessment, businesses are evaluated against industry peers to determine if they provide the family-friendly policies and benefits that are research-proven to positively impact employee attraction, retention, satisfaction and productivity.
