Centrica, Finalist 2011, The Legal & General Best for Carers Award

A highly developed and long established carer’s policy extends across the organisation to all people. This is backed up with a thriving carer’s network which has run since 2004. Dependents are widely defined, maximising the likelihood of being able to take the carer’s leave. Additional leave is at the discretion of the line manager, and flexible working policies are utilised both long and short term (at line manager’s discretion) to allow people with caring responsibilities the time they need. Paid additional leave may be available, at the discretion of the line manager. All of Centrica’s people can have paid time off for carer’s leave, via an annual leave offset scheme.
