Now in its fourteenth 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.

This year’s Top Ten (in alphabetical order) are:

  • Audit Wales
  • Citigroup
  • Crown Prosecution Service
  • Grant Thornton
  • Imperial College London
  • NatWest Group
  • North East London NHS Foundation Trust (NELFT)

Employers are 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 parents and carers.
