Family Friendly Employer Awards

The Family Friendly Employer Awards, organised by Employers For Childcare, is an annual event to recognise those employers who provide and actively promote family friendly working policies. This is important as:

  • 91 % of parents report that it is difficult to combine work commitments with family responsibilities. More than three-quarters of parents find it more difficult to develop a career after having children.
  • Employees with supportive employers are more satisfied with their work-life balance. This contributes to increased productivity, staff motivation and loyalty.
