Mother-Friendly Worksite

Communication Tools

Promoting your worksite lactation support policy and services is an important activity that must be maintained after launch. It helps women in the organization know about the program's existence and offers good public relations value for recruiting and retaining other employees.

Additionally, your new designation as a Mother-Friendly Worksite suggests that you not only want to support your employees, but you respect your community and the health of generations to come.

Expand and strengthen your ties in the community by getting the word out about your Mother-Friendly Worksite designation.
