please paternity leave managers are reluctant to men

for enterprise managers, are not aware of the necessity of paternity leave or common parental leave, but there is also a difficulty.

Cao Zhen is a Beijing real estate sales store managers of the company, his daughter has just turned 1 year old. He tells a reporter, when a family choose to have a second child, shall be appropriately increased male employees of paternity leave days, such as in the original length on extended for a period of time. Because to take care of two children to see a child, mutatis mutandis, the pressure.

Cao Zhen further analysis to the reporter said, for private business owners have a paternity leave this problem not under the control of the pressure of enterprise management, but more depends on the business itself. At present some private popular professional managers, if managers, professional managers also calculate that he essentially or enterprise employees, still have to accept the performance appraisal system and attendance system constraints, is not a simple business owners, not casually give yourself or staff have a holiday, so not all managers can decide themselves or staff holiday.

men paternity leave and what is the relationship between enterprise performance?

& other; From the perspective of the day-to-day operations of the company, ordinary employees and business owners have a big contradiction between. Standing in the view point of business owners, must hope that the employee’s working time as long as possible, for enterprises to create more value. Holiday employees, the enterprise bear the cost. From now, most of the workers or predominantly male, proportion of female employees is relatively small. In this case, the increase in the number of holidays if male employees, equivalent to an enterprise labor costs increased by about 5% every year. Private business owners want to save money as much as possible, of course, the pursuit of more profit. The boss wants to save money, the staff want to have a holiday, more roots that is contradiction. Throughout the &; Cao Zhen said.

although Cao Zhen belongs to the management, but he still suggested that stood in the ordinary staff’s point of view, the male paternity leave or joint parental leave to rise to the legal level is necessary. Some managers are not so high ideological consciousness, will take the initiative to put paternity leave for employees, if the law has, managers have to follow. The number of ordinary workers must be more than the number of managers and so should respect the interests of the majority.

the same Song Rui also told reporters that as a manager in both state-owned enterprises and private enterprises, especially small units and small companies, many jobs are designed work full-time. Female staff on maternity leave is the last, for men to take paternity leave, the company’s operation is likely to be broken, for a while also can not find people to go in for the link.

& other; Finally is commonly so company gave some overtime allowance, male staff please days personal leave instead of paternity leave, each step back. Throughout the &; Song Rui said. (at the request of interviewees, the interviewees are not his real name) (reporter Cao Mingzhu Du Xiao intern)
