Being a Family Friendly Business has helped promote local relations as an awardee. It has been a "touting" point as a local business. We are very diverse here locally employee wise. We display the awards in our lobby.

Our family friendly policies have helped us recruit and retain a highly skilled technical work force in New Mexico. As a company, we wanted ensured that Rebellis offered a benefits package that became the foundation of how we treat and respect our team members. We believe that taking care of our team by supplying first class health, dental, and vision, as well as a generous paid vacation and education benefits, that each member can focus on doing a great job, knowing their families are provided for. At Rebellis, we believe “If we take care of our team, our team will take care of us.”

We strongly believe in the importance of having a balance between work and home life. Our employees have often stated that one of the things they appreciate most about our firm is the generous P.T.O. package and having paid federal holidays off. Those same incentives were also one of the main reasons why our two new associate attorneys chose our firm over some of the bigger firms in the city. When you take care of your employees and make their needs a priority, we have found that your business is able to attract and retain the A+ team that will help your business thrive. Being an awardee for the past three years, we are very proud to have maintained that status and review our policies annually to make sure that we make the list every year.

The ability to give employees PTO, paid maternity/paternity leave, paid sick leave, and work schedule support has benefited our company on a professional level, and has also been a rewarding experience on a personal level. It benefits the company when employees can take personal time to make sure they are doing well as individuals, then come back feeling fulfilled and able to give their all at work.

The Family Friendly Business Award has impacted my business by teaching me what it truly means to be Family Friendly. Being a Family Friendly Business just can’t be something that we say that we are. We must put into action the tools and policies that really center around being family friendly. When someone is born, they are immediately part of a family, so these policies affect every person in New Mexico. Making sure that my employees have a good work and life balance is important for my company and my community to thrive.

Providing a 16% Flexible Spending account on top of employee's base salary is our greatest benefit and benefits us mostly when hiring new employees. Most employee's 16% covers all their selected benefits, and sometimes covers some of their dependents as well. Utilizing the Family Friendly logo on our website and recruitment sites sets HSC apart from the rest.
