Lozano Smith Selected As Recipient of the 2016 Child-Friendly Business Award

Every year, First 5 presents the Child-Friendly Business Award to businesses that go "above and beyond" in helping their parent employees achieve a healthy work-home balance. Lozano Smith was chosen as a 2016 award winner for its comprehensive offerings and benefits program.

"Lozano Smith believes that providing a child and family-friendly work environment is a priority," said Karen Rezendes, Managing Partner of Lozano Smith. "As a working mom, I know how tough it can be to balance a healthy family life and a successful career. It's important for employers to understand how valuable it is to the organization as a whole to provide the family-friendly support that their employees need. We are excited to share this honor with our clients."

The annual award ceremony, held at the Lighthouse for Children, highlighted studies that show businesses which implement policies and practices supporting their parent employees beyond what's required by law have a greater return on their investment.

"We are proud to call ourselves a child and family-friendly firm, and equally as important, thrilled to know that our employees made this award possible," said Karen Rezendes. "Our goal is to provide a supportive environment so each employee can thrive in his or her career while at the same time supporting our employees and their families."

Created in 1998, First 5's goal is to ensure that all children ages 0 to 5 are born healthy and raised in nurturing homes and communities where they can grow up healthy, and reach their full potential. For more information about the award and First 5, visit
