How a family can improve dad’s career
Yahoo! - 02/05/2015
Dads who spend more time with their kids are happier at work, according to a new study published in the journal the Academy of Management Perspectives. “More involved fathers experience greater job satisfaction and work-family enrichment, and less work-family conflict; and they are less likely to think about quitting their jobs,” write the study’s authors.
The study surveyed 970 working fathers, who generally worked 46 hours a week and made an average salary of $80,000 a year. The fathers, 62% of whom had working wives, spent an average of 2.65 hours with their kids during a typical weekday.
