Biogen opens Bright Horizons Child Care Center in RTP

 

 

In October 2019 Biogen celebrated the grand opening of the Bright Horizons Child Care Center at Biogen’s campus in Research Triangle Park (RTP), North Carolina. The 6,034 sq. ft. state-of the-art facility features a STEM lab, an open-door policy allowing parents to drop in anytime and a flexible schedule to accommodate a variety of working hours. Biogen also introduced a limited number of partial tuition scholarships for eligible RTP employees.


Building on the success of Biogen’s childcare facility in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Biogen felt there was an opportunity to support its RTP colleagues, as market data revealed that there was a high demand for childcare services in the area.


“Our highly talented and diverse employees work tirelessly to meet the needs of our patients, and our role is to ensure they do so seamlessly,” said Justin Fossbender, VP Compensation and Benefits at Biogen. “That’s why providing onsite childcare services is paramount to our pioneering work.”
