A resource from Working Families, this booklet is designed with fathers in mind. In the last 20 years, it has become more common to find people working in new ways as they try and get a balance between work and their home life. These flexible work patterns come in a variety of forms: part-time working, flexi-time, term-time working and job-sharing are just some of the methods people and businesses use.
But there is one unifying strand that links all these different flexible working arrangements – they’re mostly done by women. So do men even want to spend more time with their families? The answer is yes. There are more men working flexibly today than ever before, successfully balancing their job and their home life. This booklet introduces you to some of them. It looks at what made them decide to change the way they work, and shows how they made that change.
