The Owens Community College Intranet

AQIP communication around the college

With the national “Take Your Son/Daughter to Work Day” slowly approaching (April 26, 2013), I would like to put a suggestion our there for all employees to ponder on. This is an event that has been going on now for 20 years! This day allows company employees to bring their son/daughter to work with them and allow them to see what their job entails and to get a feel for what it would be like to work in the atmosphere that their parents work in. I think that this yearly event would be something that could light a spark in a child’s mind as to what path they would like to take to pursue their own career and give employees a chance to come together for a significant cause (our children). This event would also give children a behind the scenes look at what College is all about.  Each company/organization puts together a planned day of activities that gives the children a fun way to learn more about the company/organization and the day to day duties of different departments within the company. I have participated in this event at a previous job that I held, and can say that it was a wonderful experience although the company was on a somewhat smaller scale than the College. With our organization being Higher Education, I feel that it would be easy to organize a day of events without putting a costly figure on it since we have many different areas that I believe children would find interesting. I would be interested in finding out how many of our employees would like to have such an event held on our campus. I have included a link to their website for anyone who finds this of interest to look into.

    There is a Pops show in the CFPA that day at 2:00 which would be cool to invite them to.

    This is a wonderful idea! The kids can get a first hand look at the college and maybe it wont seem so overwhelming when they decide to attend in the future!

    This is a great idea! We did this at my previous place of employment and we actually had jobs for the kids to do. My daughter accompanied me and she had filing, copying and typing to do. She was 9 at the time and she thoroughly enjoyed it. She also had time to spend with other people in the company and got to see firsthand what it was like to work in a business office.
