Working Parents & Carers
Flexible Working Survey 2011
What do working parents and carers really think?
We wanted to get to the heart of the challenges, needs and wants of those who combine work and family. To find out what really makes work+family work from the point of view of individual parents and carers. Our analysis report provides valuable insights for employers on how to get it right.
What does contribute to work/life happiness?
We've been carrying out a Working Parents Survey for several years, revealing what works and what is still needed. Employer flexibility has always occupied the top slot on the wish list of participants.
Here, the results from over 1,400 parents and adult dependent carers demonstrate just how critical this is.
What should forward thinking employers be doing?
Our survey found that only 40% of respondents were happy or very happy with their work/life balance based on their current working arrangements.
There's a high correlation between employee commitment and loyalty on the one hand and happiness with work/life balance on the other.
Employers who grasp this stand to gain a huge competitive advantage.
