We have reached the final of the Working Families Best Practice Awards

NEWS

The shortlist for the annual Working Families Best Practice Awards has been announced and Morgan Sindall Construction & Infrastructure is thrilled to be shortlisted in two categories.

The company is a finalist in the Best for Embedded Flexibility and Best Returner Programme award categories.

Each year, work life balance charity, Working Families recognises flexible and agile organisations, large and small, for the work they have done to encourage new and existing employees to achieve a positive balance.

The awards are now in their tenth year, and this is the second time the business have been a part of the celebrations, having been shortlisted in the Best Returner Programme as part of the 2018 ceremony.

Jane van Zyl, Chief Executive of Working Families and Chair of the judging panel, said: "Working Families would like to congratulate Morgan Sindall Construction & Infrastructure whose flexible working culture and employee-friendly workplace has earned them a much-coveted place as a finalist of this year’s Best Practice Awards. The company’s outstanding entry in the Best for Embedded Flexibility and Best Returner Programme award categories caught the attention of the judging panel and stood out amongst a record number of entrants.

“Flexible working isn’t just good for parents and carers; it’s good for business. Employers reap valuable rewards when they give their staff members more control over their time —from improved employee engagement to better organisational performance.”

"Our research shows an unmet demand for flexible working. 86% of parents want to work flexibly but less than half (49%) actually do. Initiatives like those on the shortlist are key to helping parents take control of their time and find the work-life balance that works best for them.”

Morgan Sindall Construction & Infrastructure is now looking forward to the ceremony on 20 June at Vintners Hall in London where the shortlisted companies will gather to hear who has been awarded in each of the categories.
