Medibank certified as a Family Friendly Workplace
On 18 May 2021, Parents at Work announced a new initiative co-founded in partnership with UNICEF Australia. Family Friendly Workplaces aims to introduce standards to employers to bridge the work and family divide.
Congratulations to our Featured Employer Medibank for leading the way with family-friendly initiatives, and becoming one of the first organisations to receive the certification. Certification to be a Family Friendly Workplace shows commitment to the important role parents play in a workplace.
We are proud to showcase flexible opportunities at Medibank to our community of working parents.
Quote taken from Medibank LinkedIn page:
“At Medibank, we understand that being an employer of choice for families isn’t just about offering parental leave to new parents. Now more than ever, families are experiencing the juggle of working, caring for small children and supporting elderly parents or a family member with a chronic illness or disability, all while balancing their own health and wellbeing. That’s why we’ve partnered with UNICEF Australia and Parents At Work to ensure that Medibank is a certified Family Friendly Workplace that embraces flexible working and supports not only new parents and carers, but the wellbeing of all employees and their loved ones too.
We’re extremely proud to be one of the first companies in Australia to receive this certification under new national standards that launched today.”
