MetLife, Inc. (NYSE: MET) today announced that it has been awarded the 2016 Seal of Distinction from WorldAtWork’s Alliance for Work-Life Progress (AWLP) for creating a culture that supports work-life balance. This is the fourth year in a row MetLife has been recognized for this honor.

The AWLP evaluates employers annually to identify organizational success in work-life practices and policies, awarding the Seal of Distinction for those organizations that offer best-in-class policies and programs to support employees at home and in today’s workplace.

  • Caring for dependents
  • Health and wellness
  • Workplace flexibility
  • Financial support for economic security
  • Paid and unpaid time off
  • Community involvement
  • Transforming organizational culture

MetLife will be honored March 9, 2016 at the Awards Gala Reception at the WorldAtWork AWLP 2016 Future of Work Forum in New Orleans.
