Remember the time when you went to your parent’s workplace and pretend-typed on the typewriter (or keyboard) or held a receiver against your ears and pretended to have a multi-crore deal negotiation? For many of you, that may have helped set the tone for your own work and practices years later. At The Fuller Life, we can help recreate the same experience for your kids with our ‘Kids Day at Work’ program.
The Kids Day at Work evolved in the 1980s as an initiative to increase the female presence at workplace, by encouraging employees to bring in their daughters to their desks and provide them an insight into the working of an organization and also to imbibe in them the importance of a career.
Since then, the practice of KDAW has spread exponentially across various enterprises and has lately been seen as an effective instrument for better work-life balance.
Providing your children an actual glimpse of your desk instills in them a better understanding of why you are away from home for such lengthy hours at a time and also increases curiosity amongst older kids about how your work impacts those around you.
We at The Fuller Life specialize in managing the entire program, from conceptualization of theme to execution of the event; to provide your children a deeper and rich understanding of how their superheroes (you!) save the world each day.
Accenture and Microsoft partnered with us to bring about the KDAW in 7 and 15 of their campuses respectively, in the recent past. The bright colors and specially designed themes proved to be a hit with the children and with engaging activities such as origami, face painting and Kinect gaming, there was something for everyone! Over 95% of our respondents rated KDAW as “excellent or good”.
As John F. Kennedy once quoted – “Children are the world’s most valuable resource and it’s the best hope for the future.” KDAW is the perfect launch platform for individuals to give back to their community by ingraining into children the importance of working as part of a team and also the benefits of working for self-actualization?
