Sheffield businesses should do more to support those returning to work from maternity leave - according to one Managing Director, who is supporting the city’s new fair employment initiative.
Alexa Greaves, of IT support firm AAG Systems Ltd, believes more businesses should be providing flexible working hours and considering job-sharing roles. AAG is one of over 25 organisations to sign up to the city’s new Fair Employer Charter, the first business-led scheme of its kind in the country, developed by well-known manufacturer Gripple, the Sheffield Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and the Our Fair City campaign. Now Alexa wants more businesses to follow AAG’s lead and commit to the Charter, which launches later this month.
Alexa said: ““At AAG Systems, we recognise the importance of a work-life balance, so we’re open minded when it comes to taking people on in part-time roles or as job sharers. The Fair Employer Charter is a great chance for Sheffield companies to showcase their fair employment credentials.”
