Alliance CU welcomes babies to offices


SAN JOSE, Calif. (3/12/12)--A "Babies in the Workplace" program at $346 million asset Alliance CU will enable employees to bring their babies--up to the age of 6 months or until they begin crawling--with them to work.

Debbie Sallen, vice president of human resources, said babies will stay with the parents throughout the day at their office, cubicle or teller station (MercuryNews.com March 8).

Sallen earlier worked at another company where 70 babies were part of a similar program over 13 years. That experience persuaded her that bringing babies to the workplace eases new parents' return to work and improves productivity while reducing child care costs.

The program was introduced on March 1 at three sites. Sallen told the newspaper the launch is perfect timing for the credit union, since employees have five babies on the way.
