Employee friendly policies are a great way to support the variety of generations and needs of the workforce.

If employees are constantly sick or worried about their retirement, they lose focus on work. The other factor that so many forget is that criminal justice employees and many public servants earn less than private sector employees but are tasked with running into the conflict or protecting the public from the dangerous behaviors of a few.
