UK Mothers Want Flexible Work Options

According to new research from Now: Pensions, nearly three-quarters of mothers feel that their employers should offer flexible work options.

The study surveyed over 2,000 UK mothers who are employed, on maternity leave or currently working full-time. 

Additionally, 40% want their employers to help with childcare costs and 34% would like on-site childcare facilities.

Nearly one-half of working mothers said they struggle with work-life balance and a staggering 91% believed that more mothers would be working if childcare was more accessible and affordable.

“More needs to be done by employers across the country to ensure that working mothers are given the support that they need,” said Eleanor Levy, director of marketing and communications at Now: Pensions. “Offering more flexible working hours without compromising a woman’s pension pot is a crucial first step to ensuring equality in the workplace.”
