Top Employers for Working Families Benchmark Report

Benchmark Report 2016

The Working Families’ Top Employers Benchmark measures the full range of flexible working and work-life balance practices used by Working Families’ employer members, and how these are integrated into the organisation’s values, policies and culture. The benchmark also asks organisations about the effects and impacts. Organisations report on policies and practices that may cross departmental boundaries, or be known by different names within and between organisations: the benchmark includes practices that may variously be called: family friendly working; flexible working; work-life balance; agile working; wellbeing; or effective working. Many employers have in fact rolled these activities together to create their own internal brands that represent these strands, and more.

Over 120 organisations have now completed the benchmark, representing well over one million employees and covering a wide range of sectors.

The report includes the list of the Top 30 Employers for Working Families.
