Benchmark Report 2022
In this report, we explore how Working Families employer members across the UK have put into place family-friendly and flexible working policies that have a real impact on employees’ working lives. The experiences of these employers demonstrate that flexible working works for everyone – it allows employees to work in a way that fits with their circumstances, and enables employers to attract and retain talent across the labour market.
Every year, Working Families’ employer members are invited to take part in the Working Families Employers Benchmark. The Benchmark provides each organisation with an assessment of their flexible and family-friendly working policy and practice. Employers tell us about the polices they’ve adopted to create a family-friendly work environment, their experiences and attitudes toward flexible working, and the opportunities and barriers they face – and we ask them for the data to show how they put these policies into practice.
This summary report outlines the key findings from the 2022 Benchmark, looking at how our employer members – a group of organisations who have committed to family-friendly and flexible working – make it a reality. As such, the report offers a window into best practice, based on the real-life experiences of this diverse group of employers, and a snapshot of the areas where employers can develop further.
