Helping business owners create a lactation-friendly environment
Risk Mitigation Services
Business owners are often confused about which lactation laws apply to them, and how they can reduce the risk of employee moms leaving after the birth of a baby.
A clear strategy and lactation-friendly culture has many benefits: lower healthcare costs for mothers and babies, fewer absences, and better staff engagement.
Companies with a supportive workplace and a flexible & equitable culture see a rise in employee satisfaction and retention, as well as fewer instances of lawsuits and public relations nightmares.
We want every business owner to know about lactation laws and how to make sure they are offering employees accommodations that improve their company’s community impact.
