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.
