KPMG named in Top 10 Employers for Working Families 

 

KPMG has been ranked in the top ten employers for working families for the second year running by independent benchmarking and award organisation, Working Families.

 

The awards recognise employers who support parents, carers and flexible workers with work-life balance and career development.  All entrants including KPMG completed a robust benchmark survey which examined flexible working practices and policies.

 

Marianne Fallon, Head of Corporate Affairs at KPMG, said:  “We are delighted to be recognised in the Working Families list for the second year in a row.  We know how important it is to our working mothers, fathers and carers that they are able to achieve high performance at work whilst balancing family demands.  It’s important to us to keep on ensuring that we are providing an environment where this can happen.”

 

Sarah Jackson OBE, Chief Executive of Working Families, said of all of the companies in the top lists: “These employers have demonstrated how they are developing innovative policies and practices to create flexible, family-friendly cultures that support individual wellbeing and high performance.”

 

KPMG has a comprehensive range of support for parents and carers that includes:

 

  • “Back in Business” workshops for new parents

 

  • Childcare vouchers to help staff make savings on registered childcare costs

 

  • Emergency childcare package

 

  • Maternity/Paternity – simplified ‘shared leave’ policy

 

  • Adoption leave for those adopting a child
