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.
“Thank you for another fantastic Bring Your Child to Work Day. It was such a fun and unique way for the children to learn about our law firm and different career opportunities. We had many happy children (and parents) at the end of the day!” Hogan Lovells
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.

“We work with Employees Matter to run a Bring Your Child To Work Day every year at Northern Trust as part of our broader CSR and employee engagement strategy and the event is always very popular. The children learn about what their parents do at work through a variety of fun, engaging and age-appropriate activities and we always get such great feedback both from the children and their parents who often comment that their children were talking about the event for days afterwards.” Northern Trust
