Google revealed as no. 1 company for work-life-balance ahead of flexible working legislation changes
As new employment laws came into play on Monday, giving all workers with at least 26 weeks of service the right to make a request for flexible working, Indeed’s data shows that technology and charity organisations are leading the way when it comes to work-life balance, with the likes of SAP, Sony Electronics, British Heart Foundation, British Red Cross and Oxfam all making it into the top ten companies for best work-life balance.
The top ten highest rated companies for work-life balance in the UK on Indeed.com are:
3. British Heart Foundation
5. Johnson & Johnson
6. British Red Cross
10. Sony Electronics
David Rudick, Vice President International Markets at Indeed.com commented on the findings: “Today is a landmark for employees across the UK and the new flexible working legislation will no doubt appeal to a number of workers. It is becoming increasingly clear to employers that job seekers are looking beyond financial benefits to find the one job that truly provides the right fit for them. It’s great to see that the companies on our list are already making moves to support these needs and hopefully the new legislation will encourage other employers to follow suit. Jobs are no longer just about the 9-5 they play an essential role in people’s lives, so it’s crucial that they are right for an individual across a broad range of criteria. Beyond work-life balance and flexible working, job culture, security and the team are all essential factors that people take into account when looking for a place to work.”
