Making Reward Personal: Top companies for working parents named today


Working Families, the organisation promoting a better work-life balance for mother and fathers, has today announced the winners of its ‘Top Employers for Working Families Special Awards’.

The awards – now in their sixth year – saw Centrica pick up two coveted awards. This year it was named the best for flexible working, and best for carers and eldercase.

iCrossing, the global digital marketing agency, also took home two awards – winning for the Citymothers award for ‘best for all stages of motherhood’ and the Direct Line Group award for ‘best line managers’.

Sarah Jackson, chief executive, Working Families said: “The last year has seen many changes in the world of flexible and family friendly working, including the right for all employees to request flexible working, and shared parental leave.”

She added: “All of this year’s award winners have demonstrated the best and most innovative practices and have gone the extra mile to support their parents, carers and flexible workers.” 

Foster, managing director at Computershare, which sponsored the awards, said: “We are very proud to be able to support employers in their efforts to provide the best employee benefits available and communicate them in a way that improves productivity, loyalty and happiness in the workplace.”

Other winners included the Foreign and Commonwealth office, which scooped the best new flexible working initiative, and the London School of Economics and Political Science, which won the ‘best for all stages of fatherhood award’.

In an unusual move, Deloitte and the Ministry of Justice were joint winners of the best innovation award.

All of this year’s winners will have made their employees feel like individuals. On 9th July Reward will be recognising the power of bespoke benefits by hosting a special conference – Making Reward Personal. Crammed with case studies and industry experts, this free-to-attend conference in central London is not to be missed.
