DWF named top employer for working families

07 September 2020

DWF, the global legal business, has been ranked as a Top 10 Employer for Working Families. It is one of two legal businesses to rank as a Top 10 Employer for Working Families and is its second year in a row to receive this accolade.

Work-life balance charity Working Families has announced its annual list of the top family-friendly employers in the UK. Employers 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. 

The benchmarking assesses companies on core areas to build a comprehensive picture of their flexible and family-friendly policies and practices that specifically support mothers, fathers and carers.

Mark Qualter, CEO of Managed Services and Executive Sponsor for flexible working at DWF, said: "We are delighted to be named a Top 10 employer for Working Families again this year. Our positive focus on making flexible working the rule, not the exception, has enabled our colleagues to combine their family responsibilities with a career at DWF and supported our business to adapt easily during the pandemic too. Attracting and retaining a diverse and inclusive workforce remains a priority business issue for us, and progressing a family-friendly culture is an important part of helping us do that."

Jane van Zyl, Chief Executive of Working Families, said “We are delighted to recognise the 30 outstanding organisations that made our Top Employers for Working Families list this year. COVID-19 has demonstrated just how vital it is for employers to support the diverse needs of their staff team and build cultures that embrace flexible working. These employers excelled in our rigorous benchmarking process, proving they are leading the way in building family-friendly workplaces in the UK.

DWF placed in the top 10 alongside American Express, Crown Prosecution Service, Experian, Imperial College London, Independent Living Fund Scotland, Intellectual Property Office, Lloyds Banking Group, Pinsent Masons, Welsh Parliament.
