The State Department of Transportation in Seattle, Washington is trying out a new program that helps new parents get back to work and still spend time with their newborns. The Infant at Work program allows some workers to bring their baby to work once they are six weeks old, until they turn six months old.
The program’s director says it offers a better work-life balance for parents, improves morale, and cuts down on employee time, too. So far, there are 18 parents participating in the program.
“I definitely chose to do this,” explains Nigel Neaves, who brings his three-month-old daughter in to work twice a month. “It’s more affordable to do this than daycare.”
