This policy memo provides an overview of policies and initiatives in EU member states supporting family-friendly workplaces. EU citizens face significant challenges in balancing their professional and family lives. Family-friendly workplaces allow employees flexibility both in their working hours and location of work. This can help individuals reconcile conflicts between their domestic and professional responsibilities. Parents and families are therefore better placed to care for their children's wellbeing. Family-friendly workplaces can benefit individuals, economies and societies as a whole.
