    Promoting Family-Friendly Work - By Kristen B. Frasch, Human Resource Executive Online, PA
    'We have found that, regardless of the differences among government policies and supports in each of these nations, the universal factor that is critical to supporting working parents is the attitude and culture in the workplace and how well it is truly embraced by managers,' says Serpa, whose organization provides employer-sponsored childcare, early education and work/life solutions to companies in the United States, United Kingdom, Ireland and Canada.

    'An on-site childcare center, for instance, not only serves the families whose children are enrolled, but also sends the message to all employees that the employer is serious about investing in those resources that make a difference in people's personal lives,' she says.
