NMSU honored for family-friendly policies

For the third time since 2018, New Mexico State University has earned a gold-level New Mexico Family Friendly Business Award in recognition for its workplace policies.

NMSU received the award from Family Friendly New Mexico, a statewide initiative developed to recognize businesses that have adopted family-friendly policies and practices.

“The New Mexico State University system is honored to be recognized by Family Friendly New Mexico as a family-friendly business,” said Gena Jones, assistant vice president for NMSU Human Resources Services. “Providing our employees with policies and programs that support balancing their work and their life outside of work is in perfect alignment with the university’s LEADS 2025 strategic goal of building a robust university system.”

Jones pointed to NMSU’s annual leave benefits as an example of a policy that helps employees strike a better balance in their professional and personal lives.

“We are proud of the fact that our eligible employees can accrue 21 days of annual leave beginning on their first day of work,” she said.

NMSU also has a policy that establishes a sick leave bank for eligible participating employees who have been affected by a personal medical emergency but have insufficient paid sick or annual leave to cover required work absences, Jones said.

NMSU also encourages employees to engage in life-long learning to enhance their careers. One of the most valuable benefits offered by NMSU is the Educational Assistance Program, a tuition waiver program available for eligible employees, their spouses or domestic partners, and their dependent children, Jones said.
