This image has been around but I still LOVE it! I have never understood the anti-family stance of most companies and society in general. In my office of the future there would be a place for babies and toddlers to come to work with their parents of both sexes and also a space for pets. It would be paid for in part by the company and the people using the facilities.
I believe that a lot of companies are missing out on great people because of their daft approach to hiring a samey identikit profile of employees and making a big deal out of the fact that women who like to work also produce babies, (shock! Horror!)
So School Me!
Moms, pops, non parents…Am I nuts?
Children-drama and important work deadlines? Can they mix?
Could this work at your place of employment?
Is this impractical? (And before anyone mentions screaming kids, in my utopian office they would be looked after by certified assistants away from the work areas for the majority of the day – although certainly not banned from little visits if well behaved).
