Working Families are looking to find 2022’s leading employers, who are working to create outstanding flexible and employee-friendly workplaces.

Working Families’ annual Best Practice Awards recognise UK employers whose stand-out cultures and practices demonstrate that they deeply understand that all employees perform better when they have some degree of flexibility over when, where and how they work ‒ and that employees will be more productive if the organisation supports their work-life balance.

Now in their thirteenth year, the awards showcase and celebrate employers who are offering flexibility for all their people and going above and beyond in their support for parents and carers. Read our announcement of the 2022 shortlist.
