This month marks the 20th anniversary of Take Our Daughters & Sons to Work Day. On April 26, 2012, many companies will welcome boys and girls to their offices.
Why is this a great opportunity for our children? According to the official Take Our Daughters & Sons to Work Day web site, "Exposing girls and boys to what a parent or mentor in their lives does during the work day is important, but showing them the value of their education, helping them discover the power and possibilities associated with a balanced work and family life, and providing them an opportunity to share how they envision the future and begin steps toward their end goals in a hands-on and interactive environment is key to their achieving success."
Here at OfficePlayground.com, we are passionate about educating children and donate regularly to local schools. We believe that children benefit from exposure to a variety of careers and different types of businesses. We jumped at the chance to give a tour of our facilities to a local Girl Scout troop. The girls enjoyed packing orders, labeling their boxes and sending the packages down the conveyer belt. It was a lot of fun to work with the kids and their enthusiasm was contagious.
We sell office toys to people to use at work. Our motto at OfficePlayground.com is to make your workplace a more enjoyable space. Playing a little at work helps reduce stress, lightens your mood and can make you more productive.
When your sons and daughters visit your office, be sure to show them the fun parts of your job. We suspect that they will instantly be attracted to the toys and fun stuff on your desk and around your workplace. Whenever my kids visit me at work, they automatically go to my office and look for the same blue stress ball and always grab the mice from their block of cheese.
