(Jacksonville, Fla.; April 12, 2001) – For the second year in a row, Crowley’s commitment to work/family initiatives was formally recognized at the 15th annual Family Care Connections Corporate Awards Luncheon in Jacksonville. Crowley was named as a Top 25 Family-Friendly Company and was joined in the rankings by companies such as Bank of America, Blue Cross Blue Shield, the Jacksonville Jaguars, Prudential Financial, Merrill Lynch, Vistakon and the YMCA of Floridas First Coast.
Crowley went through an application process, in which the company outlined its family-friendly programs and benefits dealing with educational assistance, family leave, medical, dental, retirement, flextime, wellness, employee assistance (EAP) and telecommuting, among others. After careful consideration by a Family Care Connections committee, the applications from companies of all sizes throughout Jacksonville were narrowed to 25 winners.
“We are honored to have the communities in which we operate recognize our initiatives,” said Tom Crowley, Chairman, President and CEO. “With our vast array of benefits and programs, we are investing in our people and helping them to balance their work and home lives.”
