Bringing Baby to Work

Posted on April 6, 2009


A report on NPR’s Morning Edition that aired on Monday discussed an interesting employee benefit – bringing your baby to work. We’re not talking about on-site daycare; but, rather, bringing your baby with you to the office. Not a terribly widespread employee benefit at present; only a handful of employers offer such an option. The report is well worth a listen. Some view the practice as a tool to build morale and help new mothers make an easier (and, in some cases, earlier) transition back to work, while others argue that, while well-intentioned, bringing baby to work is a distration that decreases productivity.
