At Solve we are extremely pleased to announce we have won an award for being one of the Top 10 SME Employers for Working Families in 2013 awarded by Working Families UK, the UK’s leading work-life balance organisation. The charity helps working parents and carers, and their employers find a better balance between responsibilities at home and work.
The awards in partnership with the Institute for Employment Studies, recognises employers who are progressive that support parents, carers and flexible workers with work-life balance and career development. We are proud to be recognised for our flexible and high-performance approach, and we are extra pleased to be the only Scottish company to win an award from Working Families UK in 2013!
Companies complete a robust benchmark survey which examines their work-life balance policies and practices. Solve completed the newly introduced SME-specific benchmark early in the year.
The top employers for working families list has not been ranked, but it shows organisations that have taken strides in bringing flexible practices into working parents’ and carers’ lives.
Commenting on the award shortlisting, our Director, Stephanie said:
“I am really pleased we have won this award. As I have a young daughter I understand only too well the challenge of balancing work and parenting. I always wanted to create a business where work and family life could be extremely compatible.
As an employer it is really important to me that the business is flexible as I believe employees are flexible and want to work in an environment of trust.”
Congratulations to all other winners! You can see the 2013 winners on the Working Families website.
