Working Families Special Awards
For five years LSE has been recognised for its family friendly policies by the Top Employers for Working Families Benchmark and Awards, founded by Working Families in partnership with the Institute for Employment Studies.
They recognise employers who have a long track record in family friendly and flexible working and who continue to adjust and refine policies in response to employee and business needs.
Best for fathers and carers
In 2014 LSE won the Cityfathers Best for All Stages of Fatherhood Award. We were also commended for the DTCC Best for Innovation Award and were a finalist for the Centrica and Carers UK Best for Carers and Eldercare Award.
The judges were impressed by the “very strong suite of policies and support” on offer at the School and noted an excellent “strategy for the LSE that aims to ensure that it treats fathers and mothers equally, deliberately building a reputation as a diverse, fair and flexible employer that attracts and retains the best people”.
