The event was sponsored by the Fatherhood Collaborative of San Mateo County.
Company president Frank York received the award on behalf of W.L. Butler Construction, Inc.
In a written statement, CEO Bill Butler, the father of three, said: "We're a very family-oriented company, and I don't use that term lightly. When we welcome you to our family, we also welcome your entire family, literally. Several of our tenured team members are blood relatives and we offer internship programs to help grow the next generation of the Butler family."
The company abides by all parent-friendly laws detailed in the Work and Families Act, according to a company spokesperson. An onsite manager is available to assist employees with managing their benefits.
The company supports many organizations that focus on families, including the Boys and Girls Club, Family Giving Tree, Job Train (formerly O.I.C.W.), Little League, Shelter Network, Second Harvest Food Drive, and Rebuilding Together.
The Fatherhood Collaborative provides a forum to address and support the importance of men and fathers taking an active role in the well-being of children and families, according to the organization's Web site.
