Joshua Levs on "How to increase profits, draw top talent and turn employees into brand ambassadors through family-friendly practices"
Josh Levs is a journalist, expert on issues facing modern families, keynote speaker, consultant and author All In: How Our Work-First Culture Fails Dads, Families, and Businesses--And How We Can Fix It Together. New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow called it “fantastic;” the Washington Post’s Brigid Schulte called it a “must read;” the Chicago Tribune called it “fascinating,” and Forbes asked in a headline, “Can This Man Get Corporate America To Rethink An Anti-Dad Culture?” The Financial Times named him one of the top 10 male feminists. U.N. Women tapped him to be a part of its global HeForShe campaign. And the New York Times, in a front-page story, referred to him as “a pioneer of sorts.”
All In is endorsed by Maria Shriver, Bob Saget, the president of Change.org, a top official at Twitter, and numerous other prominent figures. It is “groundbreaking” and “should be mandatory reading for every CEO, HR, benefits and similar” professional, says Debra Isaacs Schafer, CEO of Education Navigation.
After 20 years of reporting for NPR and CNN, Levs -- a father of three -- focuses his book on dispelling myths about today’s dads and moms, and explaining the necessity of new policies such as paid family leave. All In shows that men and women gain from these changes. Levs follows the money, detailing how and why the best family-friendly programs benefit businesses and the economy.
