For the second year in a row, Coca‑Cola HBC Latvia has been awarded Family Friendly status for complying with family friendly business principles in its everyday operations.

Minister of Welfare Janis Reirs congratulated the 31 companies that have been awarded Family Friendly status this year. “Being a family friendly company has become a prestigious thing. The status of a family friendly business is being awarded for the tenth year, and the interest is constantly increasing. This proves that understanding, knowledge and interest in responsible business, employees, clients and their families is growing, offering a good environment, positive attitude and promoting mutual respect. Happy families make a happier society!” said the Welfare Minister in his congratulation to the companies during the award ceremony.

The assessment took into account a Sustainability Index survey evaluating the implementation of family-friendly policies in a company - such as activities devoted to children and families and effective balance of work and family life.
