Now in its twelfth year, employers large and small from across the public, private, and third sectors compete annually to gain a coveted place on the charity’s list of Top Employers for Working Families.
Employers were assessed using Working Families’ Benchmark and were scored on four key areas to build a comprehensive picture of their flexible and family-friendly policies and practices that specifically support mothers, fathers and carers.
Mark Qualter, DWF's executive sponsor for flexible working and CEO of the Mindcrest division, said: "At DWF, we fully embrace flexible working and recognise that giving our colleagues more autonomy over where and how they work can improve performance, engagement, and retention. We are so pleased to be included in this prestigious list once again and we are proud to be an employer of choice for working families."
Jane van Zyl, CEO of Working Families, said: “After an incredibly difficult year for employers and employees alike, we’ve been blown away by the high standard of this year’s entries. If anything, it’s been more competitive than ever, as more and more employers realise just how vital it is to offer flexible, family friendly policies and a positive, inclusive culture to attract the most diverse talent. I’d like to congratulate each and every worthy member of our Top Employers list 2021”
