RPS achieves Family Inclusive Workplace accreditation in Australia

28 Sep 2021

RPS has been officially certified as a Family Inclusive Workplace™ in 2021. 

 

Family Friendly Workplaces (FFW) was launched in May 2021 by UNICEF Australia and Parents At Work, introducing national standards and a recognition framework for workplaces to become certified as family inclusive. 

“A recent employee survey showed that more than half of our staff in the Australia Asia Pacific region have caring responsibilities outside of work, so seeking certification was a natural choice,” said Ross Thompson RPS Chief Executive Officer – Australia Asia Pacific. 

“While promoting work-life balance has always been important to us, working with an independent organisation like Family Friendly Workplaces to formalise and embed this philosophy is an important next step for our business.

“Being family friendly is a key element of inclusivity, and our new accreditation sends a clear message to our team members, clients, and potential employees that we support and value all aspects of their life.

“Employees are our greatest asset, and we’re proud to be investing in RPS people and their families,” Mr Thompson said.
