The Top Employers for Working Families 2015 Special Awards Case Studies
The 2015 Top Employers for Working Families Awards showcase some of the best and most innovative current practice that there is when it comes to family friendly and flexible working. Long established categories like motherhood and maternity are still hot topics as organisations refine and develop their policies, whilst innovation is strong as they think about where, when and how work might be done. The introduction of Shared Parental Leave has been especially interesting this year, and it is evident that it has really stimulated some employers to move forward their provision for parents.
These case studies capture both responses to specific issues, and the evolution of existing practice. They showcase ideas that are well thought out, are designed to be embedded and long lasting, can be tested for effectiveness and, most importantly, are useful for employees. Any organisation interested in developing their own family friendly policy and practice can find a lot to learn from the 2015 Top Employers for Working Families.
