​The Fairbanks North Star Borough's Early Childhood Development Commission (FNSB ECDC) is recognizing local employers who help their employees balance work and family responsibilities. Not only does a "family friendly" philosophy create a more productive work environment with greater employee loyalty and morale, it can also contribute to families raising children that become students and citizens.​​
