Parenting is a deeply personal journey with profound professional implications. And never has it been more important for employers to acknowledge and adopt strategies to help employees and their families navigate pregnancy, the baby years, and beyond. In this episode of the Business Group on Health Podcast, we speak with Emily Oster, PhD, an economist and author of three books on data-driven parenting, about the evidence for family-friendly workplaces. She shares how much leave parents need after having or adopting a child, ways managers can create a family-inclusive culture once parents return to work, and why we need to strive for higher vaccination rates in children.

Guest: Emily Oster, PhD, Professor of Economics at Brown University, Author of Expecting Better, Cribsheet and The Family Firm
