CELPIP Task 2 Survey Response Sample
RE: Paternity Leave Survey
Dear Mr. Johns,
I am writing this letter to you regarding our company’s paternity leave policy survey. Support for this policy, from both my co-workers and me, would be very strong since the transition to parenthood can be very stressful, and most of us feel that having a little more time would relieve much of the anguish.
The first two months for new parents are usually the hardest. Hospital visits and checkup appointments consume a great deal of time and emotional energy and often conflict with office hours. That conflict dramatically increases the anxiety level of working fathers and negatively impacts their performance both at home and at work.
The potential for the new policy to be disruptive in the short term is high, particularly for managers and team leaders; however, much of that disruption could be assuaged by allowing new fathers to work from home and delegating some of their duties during their leave.
In the long term, I believe the new policy would add some flexibility to the rules of employment that would result in increased employee loyalty.
