Recently, Weber Clark partnered with the Toledo Lucas County Health Department, a relationship stimulated in part by the Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce, to support working mothers.
Through the health department’s Women’s Workplace Wellness Initiative, Weber Clark established a mother’s room, furnished with comfortable seating and calming décor, to provide new mothers with a private space to relax and breastfeed. Health educators from the Toledo Lucas County Health Department also met one on one with employees, engaging in wellness coaching sessions and continue the health department’s goal of supporting and boosting preconception health throughout the Toledo Region.
Toledo Lucas County Health Department and Weber Clark celebrated the mother’s room grand opening with a ribbon cutting Sept. 23 at Weber Clark headquarters in Sylvania.
“We were excited to engage in this unique opportunity where we can showcase that Weber Clark is a modern, accommodating and family-focused firm,” said Katie Moline, CPA and senior accountant with Weber Clark. “The personal and financial benefits to promoting wellness and breastfeeding are undeniable. We discovered that a lactation support program lowers medical costs, reduces turnover of employees and absenteeism, improves productivity, and raises loyalty and morale of employees. In a competitive market, where all companies are striving to retain the best talent, we are thrilled to support initiatives that foster the wellness and the success of our firm.”
The partnership between Weber Clark and the Toledo Lucas County Health Department is in line with the Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce’s mission to advocate for a thriving business environment and connect businesses with resources and opportunities for growth.
Based in Sylvania, Weber Clark provides public accounting and auditing services, as well as tax planning and preparation, business advisory, and bookkeeping to the Toledo Region.
