International real estate and investment group Lendlease has been awarded a place on a prestigious and competitive list of the top family-friendly employers in the UK by Working Families, the national charity for working parents and carers.

Now in its thirteenth year, employers large and small from 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.  

Employers were assessed using Working Families’ Benchmark and were scored on four key areas to build a comprehensive picture of their flexible and family-friendly policies and practices that specifically support mothers, fathers, and carers.

“We’re delighted to be recognised as a Top Employer for working families. We pride ourselves on our family-friendly policies and we know how important flexibility is to support equity and the overall wellbeing of our people and their families. We have focussed on a flexible working culture and made flexible working requests a day-one right with training provided to all our people managers to ensure these conversations take place on a regular basis. The above industry average take-up of our enhanced shared parental leave among our employees is just one way that shows our efforts to provide an equitable culture for working families is paying off.”
