Christian Community Homes and Services is a Certified Family Friendly Workplace

Certification demonstrates their commitment to their employees and their families

Hudson, Wisconsin Family Friendly Workplaces announced on November 16 that Christian Community Homes and Services (CCHS) has been certified as a gold-level Family Friendly Workplace. The certification demonstrates CCHS’ commitment to their employees and families.

“We are thrilled to be certified,” said Pamela Klingfus, CEO. “We are proud to support our team of dedicated professionals who provide high-quality care to our residents every day.”

To be certified, Family Friendly Workplaces conducted a thorough review of CCHS’ human resources policies and practices, awarding points in their matrix for policies and practices that support families and children. As a certified employer, CCHS can use the Family Friendly Workplaces logo in their marketing and recruitment efforts, as well as access a wide range of additional resources.

“We are excited to welcome CCHS to the family,” said Neil Kline, Executive Director of Family Friendly Workplaces. “They are the first retirement and assisted living facility to become a Certified Employer, we hope others in the sector recognize and follow their example.”

As part of their certification, CCHS committed to annually contributing to a nonprofit that supports families. This year, they routed their donation to the Family Resource Center St. Croix Valley (FRCSCV) through the Family Friendly Workplaces Conduit. FRCSCV’s mission is to strengthen children, families, and communities through education, resources, and support. The organization offers a continuum of evidence-based parent education and family support services for universal and high-needs populations.

St. Croix County, and western Wisconsin, face a long-term human resources challenge that demands a strategic approach to address. The Family Friendly Workplaces Certification Program is designed to help employers compete for talent today, while also strategically addressing this long-term problem.
