What is a Family Friendly Workplace?
Family Friendly Workplaces
strive to reduce the tension that exists between work and family by embedding and promoting policies and practices that genuinely support employees to thrive at work and at home.
Family Friendly policies are defined as those that “positively impact an employee’s ability to reconcile work and family life commitments”.
