Creative and digital marketing agency Obergine won the Top 10 UK Employers for Working Families award for SME sector
We are delighted to announce that Obergine is among the top 10 family friendly SMEs in the UK for 2013. The work-life balance needs of all our employees are of great importance to us and we are humbled by the recognition from Working Families, the UK’s leading work-life balance charity.
At Obergine, we endorse innovative and creative solutions in designing family-friendly and flexible policies, because we believe having a healthy harmony of personal and professional life makes for happier and enthusiastic employees.
Erik Boman, designer and copywriter at Obergine, thought the award was a good indication of how the agency looks after their personnel. “Being able to fit my professional life around parenthood is a relief – it makes a world of difference to know that working from home is an option when my daughters need me there,” he said.
The Top Employers for Working Families Benchmark and Awards are run in partnership by Working Families with the Institute for Employment Studies, and recognise and celebrate the organisations that support parents, carers and flexible workers with work-life balance and career development all across the UK.
The 5th annual award ceremony promoted best practice on the topic to rest of the country and encouraged other organisations to join in the future.
Sarah Jackson OBE, Chief Executive of Working Families said: ‘We congratulate Obergine on gaining a much coveted place in the Top 10 SME Employers for Working Families. Our research has shown that organisations who offer family friendly and flexible working will benefit from higher employee engagement, loyalty and performance’.
