”Becoming a parent is a natural part of life, as is being on parental leave. We have hired pregnant women on several occasions. When we recruit someone our main goal is to hire the one that will perform the most in the long run. Viewing children and pregnancies as something negative feels strange. Being a parent is positive and brings about personal growth. As a parent one develops several different skills that if used in the right way can improve the company’s results and goal achievements.”

“I have very positive experiences from my three paternity leaves. Since I started taking a lot more time for my family I have changed my views. Now I have large social networks, in corporate culture and education, and I think about things I have never thought of before, as medical systems and politics for example. It has definitely a positive effect on my career and my company. The company goal now is to solve social problems.”
