Why Companies Should Focus On Working Parents, Not Just Moms
Working parents are like plate spinners at a carnival: They juggle their children's school schedules and activities while balancing their own work deadlines, attending conferences, and sneaking in the occasional shower. In 2013, 88.2 percent of families with children under 18 had at least one parent in the workforce, which means that employers seeking to recruit and retain top talent must start catering to families engaged in this balancing act. Focusing on the working parent with benefits such as flexible work arrangements and paid parental leave helps all parents achieve a better work-life balance and keep employees happier and more engaged at work.

Can You Simplify Your Organization?
Complex organizations are just that - hard to get your arms around in terms of structures, processes and relationships. Even good intentions can create their own unintended complexities. The best thing senior management can do is to make the road to innovation clear. If managers haven't built it, or worse yet haven't communicated it, they need to do so.
