National Work Life Week 11 - 15 October 2021

National Work Life Week 2021 takes place from 11 – 15 October 2021

National Work Life Week is Working Families’ annual campaign to get both employers and employees talking about wellbeing at work and work-life balance.

New polling carried out to mark the start of National Work Life Week shows a wide gulf in how parents and carers are managing to balance their work and home lives as we come out of the pandemic. Many working parents and carers feel that the pandemic has brought some positive changes. We found:

  • 41% of working parents say that the pandemic has had a positive impact on workplace culture at their organisation
  • Half of working parents (50%) say open conversations about wellbeing and mental health are more accepted at work now than they were before the pandemic, rising to 61% for carers

Working families created a series of webinars to support work life week and you can view them here

The EA are delighted to be able to support working families with flexible working scheme, family friendly schemes, job share and parental leave schemes. All of which can be found here
