Employers take family-friendly working seriously and have a range of policies to support them, according to a survey. The research looked at family-friendly working policies in companies in six European countries. It showed companies were particularly strong in areas such as flexible working and parental support. The main driver for this in most countries was compliance. The survey found the economic crisis has had little impact on family-friendly working policy provision.
