National Work Life Week
National Work Life Week 2024 will take place between 7-11 October, 2024.
National Work Life Week is Working Families’ annual campaign to get both employers and employees talking about wellbeing at work and work-life balance. Employers can use the week to provide activities for staff, and to showcase their flexible working policies and practices.
We were delighted to have Bright Horizons on board as the sponsor for this year’s National Work Life Week. Working Families and Bright Horizons share a long history of partnership working. Born out of a shared ambition to achieve the best outcomes for families and employers, we have worked together on research projects and guidance for employers since 2015.
Read more about the partnership and the motivation behind sponsoring the campaign in our blog.

This National Work Life Week we wanted to better understand the relationship parents have with family-friendly work practices, in particular how parents feel about workplace benefits, the value they put on flexible working and the impact it has.
Elliott Rae, founder of parenting platform MusicFootballFatherhood, is one of the UK’s most prominent speakers on fatherhood. During this quick-fire coffee break, we talk candidly about flexible working, mental health, and gender equality in the workplace.
Just as there’s no such thing as a typical employee, there’s isn’t just one way to signal to your employees that everyone is welcome. Thinking creatively about how to build an inclusive culture means you’re more likely to speak to a diverse range of individuals.
Whenever you choose to make a request for flexible working, being clued up on your rights and knowing how to put forward the best case will mean you can approach your request with confidence. We’ve put together this guide so that you’re one step ahead.
This National Work Life Week, together with Bright Horizons, we surveyed parents to find out what matters to them. More than ever, parents are looking beyond flexible working to other family-friendly practices that will enable them to thrive.
Our toolkit for employers tells you everything you need to know about National Work Life Week and how it can help your organisation.
