Finding Balance: Fathers at Work - Part 1

Finding Balance: Fathers at Work - Part 1

Businesses that provide paternity leave and encourage men to take advantage of it, earn employee loyalty, boost retention rates and have balanced, focused employees. Dads report feeling engaged and happy when they care for their children from the start. Patagonia offers paternity leave and has provided quality on-site child care for over 30 years. In this video, Patagonia working fathers tell what Patagonia’s Great Pacific Child Development Center means to them. How it allows them to balance work and family, changes them as fathers, and how it could transform gender roles. As one father said, “I’ll trade a surf session or a lunchtime soccer match for being able to just put my daughter down for a nap. It doesn’t compare. Being able to provide for her on a daily basis and build that relationship has really built my confidence as a father.”

To be published by Patagonia in July 2016, Family Business: Innovative On-Site Child Care Since 1983, by Malinda Chouinard and Jennifer Ridgeway, illustrates what high-quality child care looks like and why providing on-site child care to working families is at the heart of responsible business today.
