Worthingtons were delighted to sponsor the Employers for Childcare 2016 Family Friendly Awards for the third year running.
There was a large number of entries highlighting the continued commitment of Northern Irish companies to providing their employees with a healthy balance between their work and family lives.
These awards are very timely coming into National Work Life Week (3 to 7 October) which gives an opportunity for employers and employees alike to focus on wellbeing at work and work-life balance, for example many employers this week are encouraging their staff to go home on time.
