Top 30 Family Friendly Employer

Posted on 14 September 2021

We are delighted to say that for the ninth year running, Southdown has been named in the top 30 Best Employers for Working Families.

Employers are assessed using Working Families’ Benchmark to build a comprehensive picture of their flexible and family-friendly policies and practices that specifically support mothers, fathers, and carers. Southdown has been placed in the top 30 alongside organisations such as The Food Standards Agency, Office for National Statistics and Imperial College London. You can see the full list here.

Jane van Zyl, CEO of Working Families, said, “After a year that has brought a succession of challenges and curveballs to employers of all sizes, it’s lovely to be able to celebrate those organisations role-modelling the absolute best of flexible, family friendly policies and practice. Our Top Employers are leading the way in creating workplaces that support the whole person – encouraging and enabling their staff team to get the best possible balance between home and work life.”

Janet Casserley, our HR Manager, added,“It is a great achievement for Southdown to be listed as one of the top family friendly employers especially whilst we have been working during the pandemic to keep our social care staff and clients supported and safe. For the ninth year running we have achieved a place in the Top 30 Employers for Working Families. This shows our continued commitment to building a flexible, family friendly working environment which is conducive to supporting working parents and carers. During the year we have continued to look at creative ways to support all our staff to be able to balance their responsibilities at home and in the workplace.”
