Ben Robinson, a consultant with FirstRuleGroup, is doing a feasibility study on possible employer recognition programs for family-friendly workplaces. This would create a list similar to the Puget Sound Business Journal's Best Workplaces that would recognize employers for their family-friendly practices.  This work is supporting Paige Coleman at the Department of Commerce to increase retention and recruitment for businesses, and reduce the current challenges with hiring staff.   Ben is hoping to schedule 30 minute interviews with several local businesses to learn what would be most helpful in a recognition program.  If you would like to provide input and shape the future of a possible recognition program, please reach out to Ben at
