It’s no secret that juggling parenthood and a professional career is no easy task (especially during a global pandemic!) so we thought this Father’s Day would be the perfect opportunity to celebrate the amazing dads of Walnut.
From managing client accounts, dabbling in social media, overseeing website developments, smashing out some design and animation work, and generally just keeping us all in check, Glen and Liam both do a super job at supporting us Walnutters, despite how busy they are looking after their little ones!
We asked them both to tell us a bit about how they find being a working parent.
While being in lockdown, Glen has enjoyed spending time bonding with his two-and-a-half year old Cody, and said: “Juggling work has been a good experience and has made me realise that balance is key to all of this. Spending more time working from home I've seen my boy develop and that's really rewarding.
“Working smarter with less travel is key and I think we can all learn from that moving forward.”
Liam added: “It’s amazing spending time around my boy and being a parent. He’s always enjoyed trips to the office to have a nosy at what’s going on.
“Juggling work with being a dad is tough, for sure, but there’s no doubt the team are smashing it while I’m being pulled away on nappy duty!
“It’s certainly stressful but infinitely more rewarding and our team and clients alike are really supportive when it comes to that.
"I think by working strongly as a team, we’re able to provide each other with flexibility, so I’ve definitely benefited from this. If worse comes to worse, I don’t mind Jax being on a call with me either so long as he watches his language…”
So to all of the hard working parents out there who are getting s**t done, have a good un this Father’s Day, you’re smashing it!
