In Some Offices It’s Always Bring Your Child to Work Day
We kid you not. American companies are increasingly upping their family-friendly policies to compete with rival firms, offering paid parental leave and work-from-home options — and even letting employees bring their infants to the office. In 2007, only 70 major American companies allowed babies at work, but today that number has gone up to 200. The U.S. remains one of the only countries without national paid parental leave. But with more workers getting used to the family treatment, private perks might become the norm.
