Another tell-tale study conducted by Harris/Decima for Workopolis in Canada.
The short summary is that men want to spend more time with their kids and are paying more attention to employers who are offering more work place flexibility. Half the dads surveyed said they’d consider switching jobs to an employer who offers more work place flexibility, while 56% said they’d take a 10% pay cut to spend more time with their kids. A surprising 71% said they feel guilty missing family obligations for work. So much for the theory that there is only “mommy guilt.”

I just had the chance to talk with Prof. Brad Harrington, co-author of the new study The New Dad: Exploring Fatherhood Within a Career Context. I was interviewing him for an upcoming feature I’m currently writing for HR Professional Magazine
he hour I spent with Prof. Harrington flew by, and was crammed with all sorts of important findings. I urge you to take a look at it.

The latest fact to be added to the mountain of evidence that work life balance is good for morale comes to us from a PriceWaterhouseCoopers study out of the UK.

I couldn’t have invented a more illustrative survey than the one from a recent Canadian survey carried out by pollsters, Harris/Decima and telecom giant, Telus.
We’ve seen this common thread before—workplace flexibility is the second most important factor in after money when considering a new job offer while 90% of workers surveyed said work life flexibility made a company more attractive as a place to work.

Another survey with yet more writing on the wall for employers.
In a CNNMoney/Universum survey about which employers MBA grads wish to work for, big banks took 3 of the top 15 slots. No surprises there.
