My husband works at Industrial Scientific, the leading provider of gas detection service and portable gas detectors. I love that they are family -oriented and that they value each employee and their families. Every year, they host a "Take Your Children to Work" day to commemorate the Workers Memorial Day.
Workers Memorial Day is celebrated to remember those workers who have suffered and died on the job. Industrial Scientific aims to educate the children of what the company stands for and the importance of the services and products that they provide to people and companies. This event also gives the children a glimpse of what their parents do on a day to day basis.
My husband showed the kids all the different kinds of gas detectors. The company building is humongous. They used to have different offices but now they have a new building built where they can all work together as a whole.
Before we went to the orientation area, my husband took us to the place where he works and we met some of his co-workers.
The registration was on the top of the building. Every child was given a gift pack, snacks, and materials that they need during the sessions. Before the activities starts, the CEO did a speech and ask questions where the children are encourage to participate. It was nice.
Our children was not interested in attending last year but this year, they were definitely on board.
The set-up in the lobby reminds me of Google Complex, it's very modern.
Just by sitting in the lobby, you will learn what the company is all about because they have a huge TV and it displays all about the mission, vision, and services of Industrial Scientific.
Parents were not allowed to be with the children so my husband gave me a tour inside the building. It also gave me a chance to take photos where it is allowed.
I was trying to sneak and see what the children were up to. I can't help but take some photos where they at.
Every child was given a clip board and the people in charge posted clues or situation on the wall and they have to evaluate whether the situation is safe or not.
I am glad that both of our children were participating, they learned new things and they also have the chance to be with other children.
After all the activities, the answers of every child was tabulated by a group of IT's and their scores are displayed on the white board on the lobby. The highest score is 42 and both of them got it.
It was a special day not just for our children but for all of us. The kids said that they will definitely attend again next year if given a chance. I am grateful for the company for hosting this event.
