Become a Family Friendly Workplace

Increasingly, people want to work for inclusive organisations that care about their career, family and wellbeing needs. In particular, millennial employees have high expectations around work-life balance and place an emphasis on self-care.

The return on investment for adopting family-friendly workplace policies is clear. Family-friendly organisations benefit from greater workforce productivity and the ability to attract, motivate and retain employees.  Family-friendly policies also improve health & education outcomes for children and promote greater gender equality in balancing care and work responsibilities.
