The list of top 30 organisations across the UK who are pathing the way for other businesses to include family friendly workplaces have been unveiled. Many employers and organisations from different sectors compete annually to gain a place on the list of Top Employers for Working Families.
In order to decide and rank employers on their ability to be flexible and family friendly, they are given a questionnaire and are scored on four key areas. These are: 1) integration which looks at culture, attitude and the scale to which flexibility has become embedded within the company; 2) policy which looks at the creation, development and deployment of flexibility; 3) consistent practice which considers how well flexibility is supported and 4) measurements and results which look at the effects of flexibility on the organisation, and their ability to understand those effects.
Sarah Jackson OBE, Chief Executive of Working Families, said:
“Congratulations to the wide range of organisations whose flexible, agile workplaces have earnt them a much-coveted place on 2017’s list of Top 30 Employers for Working Families. The annual benchmark provides a clear picture, not just of current practice, but also the evolving way in which organisations think about work life balance and flexible working.”
All the evidence conveys that organisations where flexibility is properly integrated into the culture out-perform other businesses. Those companies that want to be the best for their employees and create a good working environment for productivity should start thinking about their culture and how they want to be perceived, and start their journey towards betterment. With 11 million working parents in the UK, flexibility has to be a mainstream way of doing business. Employers should be looking to find the flexibility that is inherent in every role, rather than reaching for the tired 9-5 model.
