Family friendly policies

09 July 2019

A family friendly policy in the workplace is intended to help employees to balance their work and family lives, and allow them to fulfil their obligations to both. They can help to relieve stress for employees with children or older dependants, and can help employers to hold on to valuable staff who may otherwise have to leave work due to conflicting family commitments. Employers can help to foster a family friendly atmosphere by considering the a range of family friendly policies, including

  • Flexitime
  • Job Sharing
  • Working from home
  • Staggered hours
  • Part Time Working
  • Maternity / Paternity leave
  • Parental leave
  • Flexible emergency leave
  • Child care
  • Family oriented events
  • Family oriented environment
  • Employee and family health benefits
