How to be a family friendly boss

Jenny Harrison




I have a friend who is an ascending executive at an international financial firm. His career has always been demanding- long hours, lots of travel, ultra-high performance standards (which he always has met or exceeded). Several years ago, when his daughter was quite young, he was considering changing employers due to the incompatibility of his work’s demands with his need to be a present father.

This is a great HBR article by Scott Benson on how bosses can be more family friendly by offering flexibility to both men and women.
