COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – At press time Colorado Parent Magazine has named Air Academy Federal Credit Union one of the state's "Best Companies for Working Families" for the third consecutive year. "I think we've been on this list because we are very proactive in making family benefits a priority here," said AAFCU Vice President of Human Resources Lisa Passalacqua. Examples of the credit union's recent "family friendly" measures include providing eldercare, petcare and an innovative backup childcare program. "If your regular daycare falls through because your child is sick then our `backup' program can have a nanny in your home to take care of your child," said Passalacqua. "Our employees love it because if gives them peace of mind and it is relatively inexpensive for the credit union." The list includes companies that exemplify "the spirit of a family friendly work environment" and were evaluated in the following areas: flexible work arrangements, childcare assistance and support, family assistance and support, health care benefits, economic security of employee's families, community involvement, management training and support of work/life issues.
