Encourage good fathering in your workplace

“I make it clear to staff that they can have time off to do family things if necessary. If they are going to watch one of their kids’ soccer match, they don’t need to hide behind the ‘dental appointment’ excuse.” – Daniel Petre, entrepreneur and philanthropist

  • Encourage flexible work practices
  • Be sensitive to family emergencies
