LONDON , June 13, 2013 (press release) – The Random House Group has been awarded a prestigious Employee Benefits award for its work-life balance strategy at a London ceremony on Friday (7th June).

Announcing the results at a London Awards ceremony (June 7th), the judges said they were impressed by Random House's approach to helping its employees to achieve the most effective work-life pattern by creating a culture of commitment to personal wellbeing and celebrating family life. Opportunities offered to staff include flexible working; informal working from home arrangements; on-site discounted exercise and wellness activities such as Pilates, yoga and sports massage, and adjusted working hours during the Summer months. Family life is central to Random House's benefits strategy with above statutory maternity, paternity and adoption pay; pregnancy packs for expecting parents and childcare vouchers for children up to the age of five.

Neil Morrison, Group HR Director, The Random House Group said: "Over the last three years we have seen significant increases in the average length of service, percentage of staff who have a flexible working arrangement and those who return to work from parental leave ensuring that we retain many talented employees. This award is a testament to the efforts of my team and leaders across the business towards ensuring that we don't just pay lip service to offering a healthy balance between work and home life."

The Random House Group was in good company with McDonalds, Hewlett Packard, BSkyB, and J P Morgan also winning an Employee Benefits 2013 award.
