From the press release:
MELVILLE, N.Y. (June 9, 2008) – The latest Adecco USA Workplace Insights survey commissioned in celebration of Father’s Day found that working fathers have a lot in common with working mothers when it comes to managing work/life priorities. Not only do the majority of working moms (71%) and dads (64%) agree that managing their family lives is more challenging than their careers, more than half (55%) of all working fathers think companies should do more to help them achieve a better work/life balance. This shift in priorities reflects the reality that today’s dads are more equally sharing the family responsibilities with moms, with the most recent U.S. Census Bureau survey confirming this shift with the number of stay at home dads increasing by almost 50% over the past decade.
