Thank you, Santa Fe Chamber of Commerce, for honoring Tumbleweeds with your "Family-Friendly Business of the Year Award" at the 2017 Business Awards Red Carpet Gala in June.
"Tumbleweeds’ philosophy is that a publication that encourages healthy families must maintain work policies that support the health of its own staff and their families," as we wrote in our awards application. To us, a family-friendly work environment means flexible scheduling that allows our staff members to meet their own family's needs and enjoyment, not just meet deadlines. It means making accommodations to allow staff to take workshops in design, editing, photography and other skills that will further their professional goals. And it means encouraging a community among workmates that will in turn encourage us to help our greater community. "Team Tumbleweeds" staff members have volunteered together and individually at the Souper Bowl, Adelante and the Interfaith Shelter, and served on various nonprofit boards.
Thank you, Santa Fe Chamber of Commerce, for recognizing Tumbleweeds' efforts to create a family-friendly workplace -- and extra thanks for recognizing the importance of maintaining a family-supportive environment in any business!
P.S. Thank you, Hutton Broadcasting, for the beautiful 'congratulations' bouquet from Amanda's Flowers!
