Recruiters at investment advisory firm Andrew Garrett are hoping to attract women financial advisors by telling would-be candidates that “no workaholics need apply.”
In its publicity materials, the Manhattan firm calls itself an “understanding, family-friendly company” that helps female employees succeed by “finding the right balance between profession and parenthood.”
“Unquestionably,” notes CEO Drew Sycoff, “people who are happy at home are happier at work. So here we have no 20-hours days.”
In fact, says Sycoff, employees are encouraged to attend their children’s school plays, parent-teacher conferences and soccer games, and to stay home from work when their kids are sick.
