Chris C. Kjeldsen Work Life Legacy Award 2012 Awarded to Laura Young

Bright Horizons congratulates Laura Young, Vice President of Human Capital Management, Benefits and Wellness at Goldman Sachs & Co., who was awarded the 2012 Chris C. Kjeldsen Work Life Legacy Award at the Families and Work Institute Work Life Legacy Awards Dinner on September 19.

The Kjeldsen award is presented jointly by the Families and Work Institute and Bright Horizons Family Solutions to leaders in the work-life industry who have made extraordinary contributions as a work-life practitioner, leader and innovator.  The award was created in memory of Johnson & Johnson executive and pioneering work-life advocate Chris C. Kjeldsen.

Laura has been at Goldman Sachs & Co. since 2001 and has spearheaded many of the organization’s work-life initiatives. In a recent interview, she spoke about how Goldman Sachs’ wellness programs are focused on the overall well-being of individuals, which is why their programs encompass so many facets of people’s lives from onsite fitness centers to child care.

Bright Horizons has been proud to partner with Laura and Goldman Sachs over many years on a variety of work-life solutions that support employees, their children and families across the US and around the world.
