Family Friendly Employer Awards

Each year, Employers For Childcare organises the UK Family Friendly Employer Awards, to recognise those employers, across all sectors, who offer the very best in family friendly policies and initiatives to their employees, going above and beyond legal requirements to support those with caring responsibilities, whether that’s for children (of any age!), older relatives or even the family pet!

Entries to the Awards open in the spring time, are judged over the summer and the winners are announced at a gala Awards ceremony and celebration lunch in the autumn, where all of those who are entered are invited to attend, as well as others interested in learning more about what it means to be a ‘family friendly’ employer.

Thanks to our host local authority for the 2019 Awards, Mid and East Antrim Borough Council, and to our sponsors, Ulster University, Henderson Group, Insight.Out, Highwire, Michelin Development Ltd, Citi and for their support.
