CiC has been named ‘Top Small Family Friendly Employer’ for the second year running, this year receiving the award as joint-winner at a ceremony in London on 18 June 2014.

Kate Nowlan, CiC chief executive, comments on the award win:

“This is a tremendous achievement for CiC and something which the whole team is very proud of. For the CiC team it’s very important that we are an employer that’s committed to offering our employees every opportunity to adopt flexible working practices on a short or longer term basis.

“The judges highlighted the flexible working options that we make available for our people, and indicated that our employees trust us as an employer. We’re particularly proud of their recognition that as a business we focus on outcomes and outputs, rather than presence or face time, which we think has been a significant factor in our ongoing success

“We will continue to adopt a policy of ‘give and take’ when it comes to discussing flexible work options with employees and are confident this will help to create an ongoing positive and productive working culture and environment.”
