Denver Post Names Bright Horizons a 2019 Top Workplace

BROOMFIELD, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Bright Horizons (NYSE: BFAM) has been named one of the 2019 Top
Workplaces by The
Denver Post
. Bright Horizons has more than 800 employees in the
state of Colorado at 15 early childhood care and education centers and a
customer contact center, which supports the company’s child care centers

Committed to giving back, the Colorado employees are known for
volunteering in the community where they both live and work. Most
recently, in March, more than 100 people from the contact center team in
Broomfield, Colorado, came together in memory of their colleague Lea
Hamel, who tragically passed away last year in an apartment fire. To
honor her legacy, the Colorado employees organized a two-mile walk,
raising over $10,500 to create a Bright
at Rocky Mountain Riding Therapy, an equestrian center where
Lea volunteered helping children with disabilities. Bright Spaces
provide a warm, safe, enriching space for children and youth to build
caring relationships, and experience the joy of childhood. This specific
Bright Space, which will be named, “Lea’s Safe Haven,” will allow for
improvements to be made, such as new paint for the equestrian center,
maintenance around the facility, and new therapy tools for the riders.
This is one of many examples of the volunteering efforts of Bright
Horizons employees in Colorado.
