GRAND OPENING! ThinkingHR and Arizona Small Business are now Live!

Today it's official, Arizona Small Business and ThinkingHR business blogs are now Live! Both blogs were created to share news, knowledge and opinions on small business (where we make our home) and topics related to human resources. I started posting on both sites a couple of weeks ago and have received some good feedback and have noticed the sites have been added to some well established blogrolls. Being an entrepreneur and in the HR space for now, 20 years, I've learned that transferring the knowledge between us makes it better for all. Thanks for visiting...more to come!

A Father's Day Question: Do Workplaces Need to Be More Father-Friendly?

This was a question that was posed in yesterday's BLR Newsletter (The link is below for you to get access to the full article).

So guys, what's the answer to the question above? Do our workplaces need to be more "Father-Friendly". Whether they are or not the article says we don't really take advantage of the time off programs our companies already have for us.

I am a Father of two teen-age boys (15, and 13). Over the years, I have tried to spend as much time as possible with them; coaching getting involved with school work etc. The BLR article states that the more time we spend with them the better off they'll be. This idea almost seems to be a "no-brainer". In fact, the article goes on to claim that, when asked, 7 out of 10 Fathers say they would take a cut in pay to spend more time with our kids. So why don't we do it?

Learn more about the programs your company offers you and take some time off with the kids-it will be great for all.

Happy Father's Day
