Pinsent Masons retains top ten place in Working Families Benchmark 2021

08 Sep 2021 | 09:00 am | 1 min. read

Multinational law firm Pinsent Masons has been named a top ten family friendly employer by Working Families, retaining its top ten place in the work life balance charity’s annual benchmark for the fifth consecutive year.

Now in its twelfth year, the Working Families Benchmark assesses employers’ development of flexible and family friendly policies building a comprehensive picture of policies and practices that specifically support mothers, fathers and carers.

Head of Responsible Business at Pinsent Masons, Kate Fergusson, said: “We are proud of the progress we have made in creating and sustaining a family friendly, flexible and supportive workplace for all of our people. As we all continue to grapple with the impact of the pandemic it’s vital that we listen and engage with our people, clients and the communities we work with to ensure we can continue to adapt and evolve to better support those with caring responsibilities.

Having first secured a top ten place in 2017, Pinsent Masons has enhanced its package of support for families and carers in recent years. In 2020 the firm launched its Global Carers Policy which provides additional annual leave for those with caring responsibilities.

CEO of Working Families, Jane van Zyl, said: “After an incredibly difficult year for employers and employees alike, we’ve been blown away by the high standard of this year’s entries. If anything, it’s been more competitive than ever, as more and more employers realise just how vital it is to offer flexible, family friendly policies and a positive, inclusive culture to attract the most diverse talent. I’d like to congratulate each and every worthy member of our Top Employers list 2021.
