The Modern Families Index is the most comprehensive study of how working parents manage the balance between work and family life in the UK. Now in its seventh year, it has been published annually by Working Families and Bright Horizons Family Solutions since 2012.
This year evidence from the Index found that working part-time is more of a hindrance than a help. For parents who work part-time, the majority of whom are mothers, only 21% have a chance of being promoted compared to their full-time counterpart. Flexible working wasn't living up to its name too, with 86% of parents wanting to work flexibly but only 49% do.
So what does this mean for employers?
