Recognising top employers
The Top Employers for Working Families Benchmark and Awards recognises organisations across the UK that do the most to support the work-life balance needs of all their employees.
This year some of the best small businesses are highlighted through the Top family friendly small business list. This is open to businesses with up to 250 employees and which are profit making.
To enter, all organisations completed a robust benchmark survey which examined their work-life balance policies and practices.
The results clearly demonstrate that employers are showing a growing acceptance that flexible working and work-life integration are vital to an organisation's effectiveness and business success.
The final list is compiled by taking the entrants with the highest scores in the benchmark survey.
