Fathers today recognise the importance of being present in their children’s lives and desire to manage work and family life effectively so that they can become more involved dads. However, integrating work responsibilities with family commitments can be challenging and many fathers face stress and burnout and become less effective at home and work.
As such, it is important for organisations to nurture a family-friendly work culture and support fathers through policies and initiatives such as additional childcare leave, flexible work arrangements and father support groups. The Great Companies for Dads Awards was launched in 2021 by President Halimah Yacob to recognise companies with family-centric policies and programmes that enable fathers to thrive in the workplace and empower them to be DADs for Life!
Great Companies for Dads Awards 2024 is open for nominations! Organisations will be selected based on the following criteria:
- Demonstration of innovative policies on parental and paternity leave that go beyond stipulated legislation;
- Demonstration of policies benefitting Dads such as shared parenting initiatives, flexible work arrangements and Dads support networks and resources; and
- Adoption of Centre for Fathering, DADs for Life and Families for Life initiatives and programmes such as Eat With Your Family Day and parenting workshops.
Are you an organisation that supports fathers at work? Nominate your organisation now by 15 October 2023.
