Anderson Lloyd is evidently committed to providing support for staff planning to combine breastfeeding with their working lives, according to the Canterbury group who issued a press release noting that “Breastfeeding supportive businesses are more likely to retain their valuable and experienced staff, and enabling working women to breastfeed is a win-win situation that builds loyal employees, as well as supporting infant and mother health and wellbeing.
“Anderson Lloyd has a breastfeeding policy, resources for staff information, a comfortable and private room for women to breastfeed or express breast milk, and a fridge for breast milk storage. World Breastfeeding Week #WBW2017, which is coordinated worldwide by the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA) calls on everyone to work together in partnership to support breastfeeding women.”
