Urban entertained 14 extra “employees” when it again participated in Bring Your Sons and Daughters to Work Day. This year’s theme was “Invent the Future” and 14 sons and daughters ranging in age from six to 13, spent the day enjoying activities scheduled Urban’s Human Resources Department.
Kim Bentz, Urban’s Human Resources Director, said, “This year’s event was incredible. We had an enthusiastic, intelligent, and interactive group. I really enjoyed the feedback from parents and hearing that most of the children can’t wait for next year.”
The purpose of Urban’s program is to expose sons and daughters between the ages of six to 15 to what a parent or mentor in their lives do during the work day. It is more than a career day. It shows the value of an education, helps children discover the power and possibilities associated with a balanced work and family life, and begin steps towards achieving their goals.
