Why is Ethara committed to being a parent-friendly workplace?

Every organization is looking to attract and retain the best talent in today’s competitive marketplace, and to do that we must put more focus on employee satisfaction. It’s an essential element in terms of staff wellbeing, which is why we offer benefits to help all working parents effortlessly blend their work and life outside the office. Introducing family-friendly policies allows us to give added value to prospective employees, and allows them to balance their professional requirements with their family responsibilities, helping them meet both their work and personal commitments. 

We actively seek honest feedback from our staff through various engagement surveys, as well as open, two-way communication platforms such as town halls and emails, and we encourage them to share new ideas and reflect on the current policies and initiatives we have in place to find the optimum work-life balance.
