Brownells earns AWLP recognition.
"The process started a couple of years ago, and goes along with [CEO] Pete Brownell's vision for all our employees to succeed personally," said Matt Buckingham, Brownells president. "Receiving this seal demonstrates that Brownells uses best practices to help our people achieve personal success, and success for the business."
To earn the seal, Brownells had to offer programs for its employees in all the areas required by the AWLP, including caring for dependents, health and wellness, paid and unpaid time off, financial support, community involvement, culture change and workplace flexibility. Recently added programs included offering flexible working hours and a "road to retirement" program.
Brownells is among only 66 organizations to earn the Work-Life Seal of Distinction for 2014. Others receiving the award include Johnson & Johnson, Texas Instruments, Northrup Grumman Corp., Delta Air Lines, Yale University and Principal Financial Group.
