Our strengths lie in our differences. We want to be a sector leader when it comes to inclusivity. And in celebration of National Inclusion Week, we got the Atkineers together to share ideas, experiences and views on what inclusion means every day.
Being a parent brings so many challenges, but I can’t thank my management team or Atkins enough for the support they’ve given me whilst trying to juggle being a working mum. I know I’m very fortunate to have an employer who really takes care of working parents. They’ve made it possible for me to be there for my little family, AND to carry on being valued at work. It’s true, with part time work comes a part time salary, but being able to be a present mum to my daughter, means everything to me!
