Sarah Jackson, Chief Executive of Working Families said:

‘Working Families congratulates the top 30 organisations and top 10 small employers who have gained a well-deserved place as a Top Employer for Working Families.  In a working environment where the Right to Request flexible working and Shared Parental Leave are now a reality, these employers have shown leadership and innovation in their policies and practices, and will reap the rewards of attracting the best talent and having a loyal and engaged workforce.  As flexible working becomes embedded in more organisations, Working Families is calling on employers to adopt a ‘flexible by default’ approach, to continue the rise in flexible working and help everyone to achieve a work life balance that works for them.’

Julian Foster, Managing Director at Computershare said:

‘The best employees have rounded existences, and the best employers do not force their staff to compromise their commitment to their families, so congratulations to all the winners of these important awards.

Flexible working creates happier and healthier workforces that are hardworking, committed and loyal, and it’s great to have had another chance this year to share ideas and reward those organisations that empower their employees.’
