In the business program’s inaugural year, WSC is named a Platinum Trailblazer in recognition of family-friendly policies.

Water Systems Consulting (WSC) has been named a Platinum Trail Blazer in the SLO County Family-Friendly Workplace awards launched by the San Luis Obispo Chamber in October 2021.

The program is designed to recognize and support employers that implement family-friend practices for their employees, which can include flexible scheduling, accommodations and support, health spending accounts, and childcare support.

This award is a recognition of the commitment of WSC’s Board and leadership to the holistic health of our employees.

“WSC offered great insurance that saved us thousands throughout the process of all the prenatal care and the birth. Our team also helped me get all my projects covered so I could enjoy the time off and not need to be thinking about work,” Adam Donald, PE.

“Transitioning back to work after maternity leave can be stressful but, with the support from my team, I was able to slowly jump back into projects while adjusting to being a first-time mom,” Kaylie Tavenner, PE.

“As a working parent of two small kids, I’m so grateful that WSC values all parts of our lives. WSC provides flexible schedules and extra support where we need it, no matter what stage of life we’re in,” said Laine Carlson, PE.

To support families, WSC offers medical, dental, and vision health benefits, maternal and paternal leave, and 100%-employer-covered short term/long term disability plans. Additionally, employees and members of their household can utilize telemedicine, virtual counseling services, and financial wellness support. All employees are offered flexible work schedules and work-from-home office equipment. Optional benefits include pet insurance, critical illness benefits, and life insurance.
