Step 5: Plan Your Worksite
After you've identified your organization's needs, the next step is to consider options for your Mother-Friendly Worksite program and outline them in a written operating plan.
The Operating Plan provides the framework for your worksite lactation support program and is a critical tool to support your program's success and sustainability. The plan challenges your organization to implement the proposed components, creates legitimacy for the worksite lactation support program within the organization, and provides a road map for action.
