NH company says this is why they let employees bring babies to work


A New Hampshire business is taking big strides for new parents by allowing them to bring their infants to the office.

W.S. Badger Co. out of Gilsum encourages mothers and father coming back from three months' family leave to bring their children to the office until they're six months old with the program known as Babies at Work, according to The Boston Globe. The parents work a six-hour day as opposed to the normal eight hours due to their lovely little distractions.

The parents are given time throughout the day to care for their little ones so that they are properly fed, and when they aren't able to step away from their work they can turn to designated helpers.

Nationally, more than 200 of these programs are in places from credit unions to consultancies, the Globe reports.

“Life and work, is there a difference? There shouldn’t be,” company founder and CEO Bill Whyte told the Globe. Whyte emphasized the importance of balance in the work place, and how he wants to encourages relationships between employees and their families.
