At Eli Lilly and Co. in Indianapolis, a diverse workforce is one that includes working parents.
The company offers employees a comprehensive range of work/life programs “to address the diverse needs, expectations, lifestyles and work styles of employees that allow them to be the most effective,” says Steve Fry, senior VP of HR and diversity. “Family-friendly work schedules and benefits are about having lower stress levels, maintaining better health and enabling a stronger focus when at work––all leading to enhanced engagement, increased innovation and ultimately better results.”
The benefits don’t apply just to parents, however. All employees are encouraged to consult with their supervisors about the kinds of flexible work arrangements they need and whether those are appropriate for their positions.
The company also offers personal leave, child development centers, elder care and adoption assistance, support groups and on-site conveniences such as health services, fitness centers, convenience shops, credit unions, dry cleaners and nursing-mother stations.
