The complete list of honorees, with winners to be recognized March 20 at the Work-Life Awards Luncheon at the AWLP Work-Life Forum in Baltimore, is available here.

The AWLP Seal of Distinction assesses seven categories of work-life effectiveness in today’s workplace:

  • Caring for dependents 
  • Health and wellness 
  • Workplace flexibility 
  • Financial support for economic security
  • Paid and unpaid time off
