Employers' Roundtable on Work and Family Issues: A Directory of Metro-Denver Employers' Involvement in Work and Family Programs and Policies.
Colorado Office of the Governor, Denver.
In 1989, a group of employer representatives in the Denver metropolitan area formed an employers' roundtable to address work and family issues. A survey developed by the roundtable was sent to employers in the Denver area in 1992. This directory compiles the results of the survey. Section 1 of the directory summarizes employers' efforts to provide child care and family services to employees, highlights services related to elder care, and examines public transportation alternatives to commuting to work. Section 2, which comprises the bulk of the directory, details the policies of and programs offered by approximately 100 individual employers. Profiles of these employers typically consider employers' work and family personnel policies, direct and indirect services to employees, financial support for employees, and community outreach efforts. Each profile also provides the company's address and the phone number of a contact person. Employee benefits are listed in section 3. For each benefit, those employers who provide the benefit are identified. Benefits listed include maternity and paternity leave, family sick leave, flexible work hours and work places, benefits to part-time employees, child and elder care resource and referral, company-sponsored child care, employee assistance programs, parent education classes, and in-kind support and contributions.
