Imperial has won a place in the 2016 Top 30 Employers for Working Families.

The College is the only Russell Group institution and one of only four other universities to place in the top 30 ranking, which is based on benchmarking survey data from the charity Working Families. The survey, undertaken earlier this year, assessed all aspects of the College’s workplace flexibility and how it supports the work-life balance of staff.

Louise Lindsay, Director of Human Resources, said: “I am delighted by the award and how it further emphasises the College’s continued commitment to building a supportive and inclusive staff community.”

The survey data was compiled by Suzanne Christopher, Senior HR Manager (Staff Engagement) and Su Nandy, Senior HR Manager (Faculty of Engineering), who also picked up the award earlier this week at the National Work Life Week Conference, organised by Working Families.

Suzanne commented: “Being recognised in the Top 30 is a huge achievement and places Imperial firmly on the map as a workplace that supports its staff in having a healthy work life balance”.
