Byrne Construction, Bank of Texas, and D/FW Airport are the 2021 winners of Mayor Betsy Price’s Best Place for Working Parents Innovator awards.
Price announced the winners of the second-annual competition during her final State of the City speech Thursday. Byrne won for family-friendly events; Bank of Texas, policies; and D/FW, resources. The Best Place initiative awarded 166 companies with the Best Place for Working Parents designation for 2021, based on their responses to an online assessment that highlights “the top 10 family-friendly policies that benefit working parents and businesses’ bottom lines.” The awards committee chose the overall winners from those 166. Workplaces can take the assessment year-around, to gauge their family-friendliness.
“In a year like no other, businesses around the country need to look no further than Fort Worth for how to make a real difference for working parents and their profitability,” Price said in a statement. “Fort Worth employers continue to show that our city is not only open for business, but is also willing to support the kids and families that are tied to the success of our city.”
Byrne, Bank of Texas and D/FW “are proving that family-friendly is business-friendly,” Price said. “I applaud them in their efforts that continue to establish our city as a national leader in family-friendly business practices.”
