What do the 2018 Modern Families Index findings mean for employers?

This report explores this question, offering advice and solutions to help working families and businesses thrive. It covers:

  • Working time and work organisation.
  • Gender.
  • Flexible working practices.
  • Effects of work on family life.
  • Parents and the workplace.
  • Workplace culture.

Most importantly, it considers the depth of change needed to bring about the cultural shift needed to create genuinely flexible and family friendly workplaces. And, in the first year of gender pay reporting, it examines the work-life aspirations vs. realities both for working mothers and fathers, offering solutions that will engender equality at work, closing the gender pay gap.
