National Work-Life Balance Employer winners 2010 – what we can all learn about running excellent work environments for women, men and customers

Work-life balance is not an issue that is unique to women – but it is one that women tend to be especially vigilant about given that we still shoulder the brunt of household management tasks, as well as child care so there is a whole lot more to fit in around the job!  The 2010 National Work-life balance winners have been announced, and the clear message from the winners – employer commitment to work life balance is worth it.

The aim of the award is to recognise and encourage family friendly and flexible work places. You can read more about the awards here.  For the list of winners click here .

The winner for Business and Professional Services was Minter Ellison in Perth – a locally owned and run commercial legal service. The award winning flexible arrangements include paid parental leave (12 weeks for the primary care giver), 3 months of full pay on shorter days for new dads and the ability and commitment to creating individually tailored flexible working arrangements for each worker amongst several other initiatives.
