Working Families winners announced in London

I was thrilled to attend and speak at the Top Employers for Working Families Benchmarking and Awards last week. The awards are a fantastic way to celebrate companies who strive to go the extra mile in providing positive working environments, supporting a true work/life balance and championing family-friendly work practices. The companies who attended the event and walked away with the top accolades in their category have all recognised the need to adapt working practices to support employees with families. In the long run, this makes for a happier and more productive workforce; assisting them in attracting and retaining skilled and reliable employees.

I’d like to pass on our congratulations to all of the winners and shortlisted companies, who are setting the standard for companies across the UK.

You’ll find the full list of winners and shortlisted companies on the Working Families website and I’ve uploaded a few photos for you here.

Working Families has dedicated more than 30 years to helping employers adopt family-friendly work practices and we are proud to support them through this partnership. We’re looking forward to working on other initiatives over the coming year.

Sarah Jackson OBE, Chief Executive of Working Families added: "Our Top Employers for Working Families all demonstrate how being family friendly translates into business success. This is really important in these hard economic times, and so I'd like to thank Computershare for their support in helping us get the message out".
