Eighteen Oregon employers are being recognized this week as pacesetters in adopting flexible work policies that give their employees more say in how, when and where they work.

The policies include such things as paid maternity leave, telecommuting, flexible work schedules, unlimited paid time off and monthly allowances to encourage alternative transportation.

Family Forward Oregon, a Portland nonprofit working to build a family-friendly economy, will honor the companies at the fourth annual Great Ideas @ Work awards luncheon on Thursday, Nov. 20, at the White Stag building in Portland.
