Employees Matter is proud to introduce this pioneering initiative, rolling out across corporate Britain since 2013.
Forget funfairs, playgrounds or even the movies – what could be more exciting than spending a day seeing what adults really do all day?
It’s not only fun-packed, it’s educational, interactive and inspiring, and introduces the concept of work at an early and impressionable age.
Employees Matter piloted Bring Your Child to Work Day after hearing about the success of the initiative in the US. Starting out in two companies, they now firmly lead the field, as 8-16 year olds across the country get a real-life glimpse of mum, dad, auntie or uncle’s job and responsibilities.
With a programme comprising fun, workplace-inspired activities designed to develop their understanding of work, staff go about their everyday business whilst highly trained leaders run a fun-filled day for the children. With consistently positive feedback from children and staff, this initiative takes the lead and bridges the gap between the academic offerings of the school curriculum, and the real-life experiences that shape the vision and ambition of our future leaders.
