Dubai: Laila Yousef, Senior Advisor at the Abu Dhabi Early Childhood Authority (ECA), joined Maria Botros on this week’s Tell Me Why podcast episode to talk about the importance of parent-friendly workplaces and policies.

  • Laila: 87% of surveyed employees in the UAE believed that if managers applied parent-friendly policies fairly within an organization, they were likely to recommend the workplace
  • Parent-friendly workplaces don’t just benefit parents and children, they are also good for business, says Laila
  • Laila: We have 17 organizations who have earned the parent-friendly label so far
  • We look at parental leave, flexible work, family well-being, and a company’s culture before we award them the label, says Laila
