When you think of work/life balance, working mothers come to mind as those most in need of the benefits. But times have changed, and a new study shows that working dads are now seeking more flexibility to spend time at home.
I recently read an article that talks about how many men are starting to look for alternatives to the 40-hour workweek so that they can spend more time with their children.
The past recession found that men were more likely to lose their jobs than women. This trend could be a reason why more men are seeking the flexibility that work/life benefits offer.
The roles of men and women have been changing for decades. Now, the roles of men and women are changing once again as flexibility, work/life balance and spending more time with the kids becomes the next phase of the genders’ role reversal.
