For the third consecutive year, Bright Horizons Family Solutions has been recognised as a Great Place to Work in the UK and for the first time, we have also been recognised as one of the 100 Best Large Workplaces in Europe. Both awards are a reflection of the organisation’s commitment to making Bright Horizons an exceptional place for employees to grow, build a career, and make a difference in the lives of children and families. Bright Horizons remains the only child care company to be included in the Top 50 lists, with more than 2,000 employees in Europe and more than 18,000 worldwide.

Bright Horizons strives to create an unmatched workplace culture that supports its mission as a company dedicated to helping working families and their employers. The company provides work/life solutions that enable organisations to achieve their business goals while providing their employees with an important balance between their personal and professional lives.

Our recognition in the UK, and our recent inclusion in the Great Place to Work Ireland list, together with similar awards in the U.S., make it clear that Bright Horizons employees worldwide share a commitment to our HEART principles: honesty, excellence, accountability, respect and teamwork.

Bright Horizons Managing Director, Europe, Stephen Kramer said, “Our greatest strength in Europe, and around the world, is our employees and the work that they do each and every day to care for, teach and inspire children. This award is a testament to them, their passion and belief in what they do and the difference they make in the lives of working families.”

Reaching Beyond Our Borders Bright Horizons Teams with Mercy Corps to Aid Disaster Victims in China and Myanmar

Thursday, May 15, 2008

Bright Horizons has teamed up with our international relief partner, Mercy Corps, to aid victims of two of the world’s most devastating natural disasters to strike Asia. As many as 1.9 million people in Myanmar/Burma are desperate to survive since a cyclone hit last week. In China, thousands are grieving the loss of entire families and villages since a powerful earthquake struck. In both nations, families are struggling to find adequate shelter, food and medical care, and children are especially at risk. Linda Mason, Chairman and Founder of Bright Horizons and the Chairman of Mercy Corps Board of Directors has brought our two organizations together to make a difference in the face of disaster. Mercy Corps is one of the first humanitarian organizations to receive permission to serve victims in Myanmar/Burma and is on the ground there and in China providing aid to children and families in need. Members of the Bright Horizons family who want to reach out to aid are encouraged to please visit www.mercycorps.org/brighthorizons to learn how you can contribute.
