Is The New Economy Family Friendly?
from the depends-on-your-family dept
A long, but interesting look at how family friendly startup culture is. It points out that bigger companies often have “family friendly” rules, but it’s often frowned upon if you actually use any of them. At the same time, while startups often expect people to have no family responsibilities, they may be more receptive to flexible work arrangements. In the end, I think it comes down to a company’s culture. What are they trying to achieve and how do they view their employees? Companies that view their employees as people are more likely to be “family friendly” than companies that view their employees as “resources”.
