The accolade recognises organisations across the UK who are leading the way in building flexible, family friendly workplaces. Employers large and small from many sectors compete annually to gain a place on the list of Top Employers for Working Families.
Employers answer in-depth questions and are scored on four key areas to build a comprehensive picture of their flexible and family friendly working environment. These are:
- integration which looks at culture, attitude and how far flexibility has become embedded
- policy which looks at the creation, development and deployment of flexibility
- consistent practice which considers how well flexibility is supported
- measurement and results which looks at the effects of flexibility on the organisation, and their ability to understand those effects.
