As you know, Oliver Kamm now writes leaders for The Times. This sounds a little like him. Linguistically, at least.
It is the time for the best employers to press the competitive advantage that the best employment policies bring them. This means proactively encouraging women to return to the labour market after having children.
Also logically: if encouraging women to return after having children were indeed a competitive advantage then companies would indeed be doing it. That some do and some don\’t shows that it is a competitive advantage for some and not for others. But Ollie thinks we should change the law anyway….umm, why?
