Research suggests that early, more intense engagement in pareting for men has positive long-term effect for both father and child. While many other developed countries have paid leave for mothers and fathers, the United States is an outlier, offering no national policy on paid leave for mothers and fathers. The authors surveyed more than 1,000 fathers employed at 286 different organizations, as well as 30 companies for their benchmarking study. The report covers fathers’ attitudes about paternity and parental leave; benchmarking of company paternity leave policies; global approaches and policies; and recommendations.
