December 18, 2018 – Rolla, MO and Springfield, MO – Brewer Science, Inc., joined a growing number of Missouri businesses by becoming a Missouri Breastfeeding Friendly Worksite. The company proactively supports employees who choose to breastfeed their infants by providing time, space and other benefits to maintain breastfeeding after the employee returns to work.
The Missouri Breastfeeding Friendly Worksite Program was created by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) in 2013 to bring an increased awareness about the importance of worksite lactation support. The program recognizes employers with policies supportive of their breastfeeding employees. Such policies provide a flexible work schedule for milk expression breaks; offer a private space, other than a bathroom, where the employee can pump or breastfeed; and ensure easy access to a safe water source and place to store milk.
“Brewer Science is committed to being a company of the people, by the technology and for the customer. This commitment to our people sets us apart as a unique company and makes Brewer Science a rewarding place to work,” explains Alan Gerson, Executive Director, Human Resources. “We are extremely pleased to be designated as a Missouri Breastfeeding Friendly Worksite.”
Missouri Breastfeeding Friendly Worksites represent a wide range of employment sectors, settings and worksite sizes. To be designated as a Missouri Breastfeeding Friendly Worksite, an employer must submit an application to the DHSS. Application materials can be found at http://health.mo.gov/living/families/wic/breastfeeding/support.php. A listing of recognized businesses is available on the Missouri Breastfeeding Coalition’s website, http://www.mobreastfeeding.org/.
