Top Family- Friendly Employer [UK] (2009)

Sponsor:
My Family Care, Ernst & Young, HR Magazine, guardian.co.uk, and National Family Week

Description:
“This inaugural list of Top Employers for working families marks the 30th anniversary of Working Families. These are employers who have a track record of being family-friendly. Together they have helped to change the way we think about and organise the way we work. Family friendly working isn’t just about flexible working. It includes other elements like childcare, employee support and wellbeing too.”

Methodology:
“An eminent panel of judges met in mid May 2009 to select the inaugural Top Employers for working families list. The judges drew on their experience in the work-life field and their specialist knowledge of diversity, employment and family life over the past thirty years… Judges were looking for the UK organisations whose innovative employment practice or initiatives have changed the landscape for working parents and careers. Judges were looking for leadership in one or more of the following areas: flexible working; childcare provision; maternity and/or paternity policy; eldercare policy.”
