Prof Wei-Jun Jean Yeung, Provost’s Chair Professor in the Department of Sociology at NUS Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and Asian Research Institute, and Director of the NUS Centre for Family and Population Research, said that IKEA’s move to offer month-long paid paternity leave is an exciting move in a public-private partnership to help strengthen families and encourage male employees to get involved in raising their children. Prof Yeung discussed the benefits of fathers taking time off to spend with their family and expressed hope that IKEA’s move will inspire other companies to follow suit.
