Bright Horizons Named a Winner of the Colorado 2018 Top Workplaces Award by Denver Post
April 23, 2018 – Bright Horizons has been awarded a 2018 Top Workplaces honor by The Denver Post. Bright Horizons has nearly 800 employees in the state of Colorado at 15 early childhood care and education centers and a Customer Contact Center, which supports the company's child care centers and preschools along with its emergency back-up care, EdAssist, and College Coach services.
“The teachers and staff at our child care centers and our employees at our contact center are not only committed to bringing their very best to work every day for those we serve, but also for each other. It is their compassion for others and their passion for our mission that makes their workplace a great place,” said Bright Horizons CEO Stephen Kramer. “They have earned this honor because of the work they do every day to support one another. And I am so proud that day in and day out they extend that commitment beyond the Bright Horizons family in order to make a lasting impact on the communities where they live and work. I am proud and honored to celebrate our employees throughout Colorado for this well-deserved recognition."
Through a variety of fundraising and volunteer activities, supporting The Bright Horizons Foundation for Children, in 2017, Colorado Bright Horizons Centers and the Broomfield Regional Office raised $20,000 to support Bright Spaces®. Bright Spaces are warm, enriching places in shelters and community agencies where children and youth in need can build caring relationships, heal from trauma through play, and experience the joy of childhood. There are currently six Bright Spaces in Colorado with plans to create three new Bright Spaces in the state over the next year. Additionally, Bright Horizons child care centers across Colorado collected $12,500 in school supplies for the “Stuff for Students” campaign, providing filled backpacks to more than 60,000 students in need throughout the state.
