Employers 4 Fathers now stands under enei umbrella
Mon, 25 Jun 2012
The Employers Network for Equality and Inclusion (enei) has incorporated Employers 4 Fathers (E4F), a membership body for employers concerned with retaining and engaging fathers within its workforce, into its organisation.
Enei chief executive Denise Keating says the two groups have “great synergy” between their objectives, and “significant overlap between our members”.
Caroline Waters, director of people and policy at BT and E4F chair, says: “Many workplaces have introduced family friendly work practices, however men are often reluctant to access these policies due to the cultural expectations of their workplace, and a lack of male role models balancing work and family life.
“The evidence shows that fathers who work flexibly are more committed to their organisation – and feel that it is more committed to them – leading to greater engagement, and the increased agility and productivity that comes with it.”
