What we do
Work & Family Foundation Canada considers that neither business nor society at large can remain viable without healthy family life. With that objective WFFC supports companies in 3 different areas:
Sensitization and Diffusion
Promoting the organization of conferences, seminars and awareness sessions to share the best practices of flexible companies and to raise awareness on the impact Corporate Family Responsibility has on employees, companies and society.
Work & Family Foundation Canada is partnered with the International Center for Work and Family of IESE Business School – University of Navarra (Spain), funded and directed by Nuria Chinchilla, PhD pioneer in subjects such as work-family balance and women´s professional careers.
During the last 3 years, as a result of the investigations conducted by professors Nuria Chinchilla and Mireia Las Heras, ICWF has developed a Corporate Family Responsibility study named IFREI 3.0 with the purpose of analyzing the implementation of flexibility practices in different business environments and its impact on people. This investigation compares information given by collaborators vs. their managers’ perspective, giving a diagnostic on the impact on employees, company and society.
To broaden the Corporate Family Responsibility research´s scope and raise its awareness among the business sector, Work & Family Foundation Canada has created the IFREI Accreditation, based on the statistical analysis developed by ICWF from IESE Business School.
