Supporting women at work might seem like something we can take for granted in this post #MeToo age. In reality, we should be asking, “How can companies support women, especially working mothers, to perform at their best?”
You sometimes hear people asking, “Why should I support someone who’s taking time off to care for her children? That’s her choice and I don’t want to have to do extra work because of it!” Look at it this way… If no one takes care of the children, who is going to pay into Social Security when you get old? Who is going to do the work when you’re no longer able to?
It’s a great thing that fathers are increasingly stepping up to do their share of childcare. The old business paradigm—which was created by men for men with the assumption that there would be a wife raising the children and taking care of the home—no longer works. Not for anyone. Watch this new video and learn more about how and why we should support women at work.
Success in the workplace is compatible with a thriving family and personal life. Supporting women at work is the best thing for your business, and the country as a whole. If you want to improve your bottom line, ask yourself, “How can companies support women in their roles as worker and family caretaker? How do we adapt to the modern economic climate of diversity and falling birth rates?”
Women at work are here to stay. We need to come together and support each other. That includes hiring and mentoring other women and creating a balanced business model that takes into account the needs of each person, regardless of gender.
Whether you own a small business or are CEO of a multi-national corporation, supporting women at work is the right choice because it does make your bottom line look better.
