Working Families have released their 2023 list of best companies for flexibility and family-friendly policies.
Audit Wales, Pinsent Masons and Yorkshire Building Society all feature in the top 10 of the 2023 Top Employers list lauded by Working Families.
According to Working Families, 86% of this year’s Benchmark entrants already offer flex from day one, 92% of employers assess some, or all, jobs to determine the potential for flexible working prior to advertising and 78% of organisations provide details of the options to work flexibly on their website.
Jane van Zyl, CEO of Working Families, said, “These employers show they are leading the way in building family-friendly and flexible workplaces in the UK and are already ahead of the curve when it comes to implementing the changes needed to comply with the new flexible working legislation coming into practice next year. Almost nine out of ten of our Benchmark entrants are already offering flexible working as a day one right.”

The list has been running since 2010. According to Working Families, it examines “integration to organisational strategy and culture – which looks at culture, attitude and how far flexible and family-friendly working practices have become embedded; policy – which looks at the creation, development and deployment of flexible and family-friendly working policies and their take-up; consistent practice – which considers how well flexible and family-friendly working is supported; and evidence and statistics – which looks at the effects of flexible and family-friendly working on the organisation, and their ability to understand those effects.”
