Where is Your Chair? A Better Way for Dads to Work

Interview with Eric Arthrell / Researcher on The Changing Desires for Fathers At Work

Hosted by Paul Sullivan

Eric Arthrell, a long-time management consultant, was the lead author on Deloitte’s “The Design of Everyday Men Report” – a look at how top-performing fathers want to work differently and what the best companies have done to retain and support them. Key finding: inclusive work cultures do better in terms of both financial performance and innovation. But he also found that without senior managers modeling this behavior men were unlikely to be open at work about their role as fathers. Listen to Arthrell talk about how companies can enable men to be better fathers at work and relieve some of the burden on working mothers, and what lines working Dads need to draw for themselves.
