Birmingham-Southern selected as ‘Best of the Best for Working Families'

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.— Birmingham-Southern College was selected this year as the “Best of the Best for Working Families” winner in the education category by Birmingham Family Times.

The publication's annual survey seeks out, encourages, and offers public recognition to organizations in the Birmingham area that have adopted family-friendly policies and practices—both the standard, long-accepted policies and the new, innovative ones.

BSC previously has been honored as one of the “Best Companies for Working Families,” but this is the first year that the college was selected as a “Best of the Best” category winner.

“Experience, along with research, has shown that family-friendly policies lead to better balance, more creative and dedicated employees—workers who usually remain loyal to their employer and are more committed to the job,” states a Birmingham Family Times article announcing the winners.

Birmingham-Southern was cited for the beauty of its campus, dedication to excellence, family atmosphere, wellness programs, child-friendly programs, full tuition reimbursement, health and safety, counseling center and full-time nurse, campus police, full range of financial benefits and options, campus events, and flextime options, among others.
