NY Times (October 11, 2020): C.E.O.s Rediscover the Family Dinner Table

Jenny Gross, in her New York Times article, focuses on the change in home dynamics for chief executives since the start of the pandemic. Her article, “C.E.O.s Rediscover the Family Dinner Table,” begins as follows:

Before the coronavirus pandemic, John Foley, the chief executive and founder of Peloton, and his wife, Jill, a vice president at Peloton, would leave the house each morning by 7:45 a.m. and not come home until 7:30 p.m. By then, their nanny had already fed and gotten their two children ready for bed.

“That wasn’t awesome,” Mr. Foley said. “We didn’t share any meals.”

Then, in March, everything changed. Not only was the Foley family having dinner together every night, they were together all of the time.

“You wake up together, you all have breakfast together, you work together, have lunch together, you have dinner together, you wake up the next morning and you do it again,” said Mr. Foley, who has an 8-year-old daughter and a 12-year-old son.
