It would be easy to slide right on by this story about how Twitter will be providing employees, both moms and dads, with 20 weeks of paid parental leave. One could just smile and say that it's just one of those trendy tech companies.
But, then you look at the statistic about the effects of generous leave benefits on kids, moms and families.
Business Insider reports in a story:
Research out of Israel shows the more leave men take to care for children when they're young, the more the fathers undergo changes in the brain that make them better suited to parenting. And a study by two Columbia University Social Work professors found that fathers who take two or more weeks off after their child is born are more involved in their child's care nine months later.
And with the more leave dads take, the more income a mom makes.
Any talk about this issue and this benefit with more traditional businesses and corporations?
