Published on 01/10/2018

L&Q's Assistant Director for HR, Chris Gillam, has been shortlisted for a Working Mums Champion award.

This Award is for stand-out individuals whose efforts have made a big difference to working mums in their workplace.

It is one of eight categories in the Top Employer Awards. Twenty-nine of the most progressive employers and their representatives have been shortlisted.

The Awards will be announced at a ceremony in London on 6th November, which will involve a keynote address by Labour MP Gavin Shuker, member of the Women and Equalities Committee.

The Awards recognise employers of all kinds who are progressive in their flexible working practices and proactive in seeking to retain talented staff, particularly working parents who want to combine successful careers with being a parent.

David Montague, CEO of L&Q, said: "L&Q is committed to work-life balance and recognises the changing demands of family life. We know that this can only be achieved if we can provide the type of working environment and benefits package that attracts and retains the best people in the business. The bottom line is that L&Q is striving to be the housing employer of choice for talented and ambitious people."
