FORT WORTH, Texas, March 18, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- As a law firm that respects how hard its attorneys and staff work, both on the job and at home, Patterson Law Group, a personal injury law firm, is proud to announce its new business designation as a Best Place for Working Parents!™. Patterson Law Group earned this business designation in recognition of the policies and practices it offers to employees, specifically working parents by taking the first-of-its-kind online business self-assessment that showcases the family friendliness of a business and how a company compares to other companies of similar size and industry in Fort Worth.
The Best Place for Working Parents™ designation officially launched in January 2020 and is available to qualifying businesses of all sizes and industries in Fort Worth, Texas. With under 200 employees, Patterson Law Group qualified for the Best Place for Working Parents™ small business designation.
"We're honored to be included as one of Fort Worth's Best Place for Working Parents businesses for the ways we work to support and promote parents," said Travis Patterson, Managing Partner. "I'm proud of the strides we have made to support working parents by offering maternity/paternity leave, nursing mother programs, flexible schedules, and remote work arrangements. In addition, during this challenging time with COVID-19, Patterson Law Group has offered subsidized babysitting to all its working parents. As a father and business owner, I know that by advancing these programs we're empowering all of our employees in pursuit of a more sustainable work-life balance that will ultimately impact our success as a company and as an economy during these difficult times."
Grace Ocanas, Litigation Paralegal, at Patterson Law Group, shared that one of the reasons she came to work for Patterson Law Group was the family values and career growth opportunities for growing families.
"One of my favorite pictures of my son was early on in my start at Patterson Law Group when he came to work with me as his pre-school was closed for the day. He sat at the table with Travis, other attorneys and staff during a team meeting. I felt pride not only as my choice in employer but as a working mom that fully acknowledges the "mom-guilt" with being apart from my kids to pursue a career," said Ocanas. "The support and accommodations Patterson Law Group provides, sometimes without even realizing it, has made me a happier mother. My kids certainly deserve that. Happy that my employer supports me as a mom."
Patterson Law Group understands that the benefit of a supportive workplace for parents extends to their colleagues, as well.
"As the fastest-growing large city in the nation with the 2nd highest percentage of families with children, The Best Place for Working Parents™ seeks to support businesses with key strategies that support working parents AND businesses' bottom line," said Cheraya Peña, Best Place for Kids and Working Parents™ Program Director. "We are thrilled to recognize the businesses that are leading the way to support working parents in Fort Worth and trust that by doing this we will ultimately build Fort Worth as the Best Place for Kids!™."
