70% Of Fathers Seek More Flexible Working
17 January 2017
New research from Working Families and Bright Horizons has found that employers are failing to recognise the wants of fathers to spend more time with their families, and could be driving away fathers as well as mothers with family unfriendly policies.
The research found that 38% of fathers would take a pay cut to enjoy more family time, with 70% of fathers wanting to work more flexibly and 47% willing to downsize into a less stressful job. Despite this 11% of respondents said that their boss makes no allowances at all for family life.
