The number of women who work after having children has risen significantly in the last couple of decades – now almost 75% of mothers are now in the workforce (ONS figures, 2017)
This – and other movements towards greater equality including more recent focus on the gender pay gap – have driven more in depth discussions about how gender equality at work depends on gender equality at home.
Surveys show that dads want to be more involved, and would like to seek flexible working to help with this – but cultural barriers still exist.
Our partner site, Workingmums.co.uk put together a free e-book highlighting how organisations can address the issues dads face in the workplace, and to highlight what some of the most progressive employers are doing to support dads, including initiatives like dad to be workshops, simplifying and enhancing Shared Parental Leave and moving to agile working.
