Wright’s Bakery has been awarded the third annual Osceola County Family Friendly Workplace Award from the Mecosta Osceola Great Start Collaborative (GSC). Parents were encouraged to nominate their employers. The term “family-friendly” can mean many different things … such as flexible work schedules to accommodate for doctor appointments and school activities, wellness programs, child care resource information, etc. There is a wide range of benefits that can make a big difference in the life of a working parent.

The director of the Reed City Chamber of Commerce, Suzie Williams, joined GSC staff Chastity Holmquist and LouAnn Gregory at the presentation this morning to the owners Don and Karen Wright, and John Hanna, as well as staffers Barb Bechtol, Chris Rizzo, Deb Merriss, Jean Whitman, Linda Krawchuk and Nikki Shaw.
