Working Families leads the way in helping organisations and employees build enabling and flexible environments that enhance productivity, creativity and wellbeing so that work works for everyone. With 40 years of research, combined with deep, cross sector industry experience, we provide expert, evidence-based advice and training to help employers and employees succeed.
A Working Families membership for employers will give you the tools, guides and policies you need to implement agile, flexible and family-friendly business practices.
The Working Families case study library has case studies from past finalists of our annual best practice awards, along with case studies of other organisations and individuals leading the way in flexible family-friendly working.
Working Families offers one off policy reviews, virtual consultancy, and group coaching to help your workplace become more family-friendly and flexible. Why not try one of our Lunch and Learn sessions, or group coaching for line managers?
Our exclusive toolkits, guides and policies are designed for employers to ensure compliance with maternity legislation and implement flexible and family-friendly business practices.
The Working Families benchmark is the only tool available that measures all aspects of flexible working and work-life policies and practice.
Working Families run events throughout the year including webinars, awards, conferences, roundtables, members-only events for network chairs, and more.
Our programme of nationwide events enables employers to share best practice and keep abreast of current developments and leading edge thinking, whilst networking with peers and specialists in the field.
To coincide with International Women’s Day, this fascinating roundtable will explore how to create a culture where all women can progress.
During this insightful Network Chair Event, we’ll bring together members that have a well-established Parents and / or Carers Network Group, as well as those who are looking to introduce or re-ignite one, to share their challenges and successes.

The Best Practice Awards are your chance to tell us about what you do to develop and support flexible and family-friendly working in your organisation. Each year the Award winners are chosen by our panel of expert judges from all the entries. We hope that you enjoy reading about these different companies, and that perhaps these case studies will provoke new ideas about the way that family friendly and flexible working can be shaped in your own organisation. These are best practice examples; we hope that you can take something from them.
