Workingmums.co.uk, the UK’s number one jobsite for professional working mums and flexible jobseekers, is proud to announce the launch of its inaugural annual Top Employer Awards to publicly recognise and celebrate the achievements of companies offering leading practices in flexible working, diversity and work life balance.


Workingmums.co.uk attracts thousands of candidates and jobseekers each month who are highly-skilled and qualified women working in a wide range of roles. Results from its annual survey of over 1,600 jobseekers show that 79% of these experienced and professional women value flexibility in the way they work, including flexible hours, home working or part-time work. The Workingmums.co.uk Top Employer Awards recognise employers who are progressive in their flexible working practices and proactive in seeking to assist working parents combine successful careers with being a parent.


Gillian Nissim, Founder of Workingmums.co.uk says: “We’ve decided to launch the awards on the back of demand from employers and candidates alike - we want to share good practice and inspire others. Too often the case for flexible working is argued simply as an employee benefit. The organisations that we work with are demonstrating that new, more flexible ways of working offer many benefits for both employer and employee.”


The Workingmums.co.uk Top Employer Awards has its own microsite where companies can enter the awards or find out more information about this exciting event: http://www.workingmums.co.uk/topemployerawards/


Winners will be announced at an award ceremony being held at The Soho Hotel, London, on 5th October 2010. Closing date for entries is 23rd July 2010.
