This event will honor the businesses in New Mexico that qualify for the Family Friendly Business Award® and recognize those businesses on the path to creating a family friendly workplace. Join us as we honor and recognize the New Mexico Family Friendly Business Awardees for 2021!

The Family Friendly New Mexico initiative takes a positive approach to transforming workplace policies in the state by: offering training and resources on how businesses can adopt more family friendly policies; awards and recognizes businesses that offer their employees family friendly benefits; and, acts as a resource and clearinghouse of information for businesses and community leaders as they develop policies on issues such as paid family leave, retirement planning and health insurance. In 2010, approximately 60% of New Mexico children had all parents in the workplace.

Family Friendly New Mexico is a non-profit initiative that recognizes New Mexico businesses with family friendly policies. It does not advocate for legislation or regulation but simply works to promote family friendly business practices to New Mexico business.

Family Friendly New Mexico was created by the New Mexico Task Force on Work-Life Balance to recognize and celebrate New Mexico businesses that have family friendly policies in place, including paid leave, health support, work schedules and economic support. Any New Mexico business is eligible to apply for the Family Friendly Business Award®.
