Multinational law firm Pinsent Masons has been named as a top ten family friendly employer by the national charity for working parents and carers Working Families.

As the only law firm listed in the top ten, the firm has secured a top ten place for the 7th year running as a result of its support for working families and those with caring responsibilities.

Now in its fourteenth year, the benchmark sees employers from across the public, private, and third sectors compete annually to gain a place on the charity’s list of Top Employers for Working Families. Businesses are assessed using Working Families’ benchmark and are scored in four key areas, building a comprehensive picture of their flexible and family-friendly policies and practices that specifically support parents and carers. 

Managing partner at Pinsent Masons, Laura Cameron, said: “We’re very proud of the progress we’ve made in enabling all of our people to thrive in their careers. Initiatives and programmes which ensure working parents and carers can develop and progress is absolutely vital for any business. We’ll continue to engage with all of our people to seek continuous improvement and to be creative and innovative in our approach to supporting working families.”

In the last year the firm has implemented a return-to-work buddy scheme which connects those returning from family leave with a colleague who provides guidance and support after a period of time out of the business.

Furthermore, the firm has formed an international family matters steering group to help shape its approach to supporting and engaging with working families from across the multinational network. The group is designed to promote connectivity and a better understanding of the range of challenges facing working parents across the firm's network.

CEO of Working Families, Jane van Zyl, said: “We are delighted with the standard of entries for this year’s Top Employers for Working Families list. These employers show they are leading the way in building family-friendly and flexible workplaces in the UK and are already ahead of the curve when it comes to implementing the changes needed to comply with the new flexible working legislation coming into practice next year. Almost nine out of ten of our Benchmark entrants are already offering flexible working as a day one right.”
