Working Families Index 2022 – Employer action briefing
The Working Families Index is the most comprehensive study of the experience of work and family life in the UK.
Written specifically for employers, this briefing takes the findings of the Working Families Index and turns them into actionable recommendations to improve flexible and family-friendly practices across all sectors.
The Index, sponsored by our partners Talking Talent, builds on 8 years of previous research. It offers new insight into the effect of the societal impact of Covid-19 on working families. Most notably, we see the impact of the pandemic on family finances and access to flexible work. Compared with survey findings from just two years ago, significantly more parents report finding it financially harder to raise a family. This is now a clear trend.
