With more people in the UK becoming working parents, or working carers, it’s increasingly important that our workplaces are flexible, family-friendly, inclusive environments. Not only is that good for working families, but it’s good for everyone.
Tim Moss, IPO CEO says:
“For the third time in four years, we’re in the top 10 for the Working Families Benchmark. To fulfil our ambition of being the best IP office in the world, we need to make sure IPO is a brilliant place to work and I feel a great sense of pride that Working Families benchmark shows we are well on the way to achieving that.
I am surrounded by teams and board members who are truly passionate about making the IPO an organisation where families can thrive.
The Working Families Benchmark acknowledges our fantastic flexible working, our work-life policies, our practices and our culture of valuing individuality and supporting our people to be the best they can be.”
Jane van Zyl, CEO of Working Families, said:
“COVID-19 has demonstrated just how vital it is for employers to support the diverse needs of their staff team and build cultures that embrace flexible working. By excelling in our rigorous benchmarking process, the IPO has proven they are leading the way in building family-friendly workplaces in the UK.”
