BRING IN YOUR PARENTS DAY
Like many of us, LinkedIn employees also used to laugh out the matter that their parents were unaware of the strenuous conditions they underwent the whole day at their workplace. But, Catherine Fisher, a senior director and member of marketing and communications at LinkedIn took notice of the same. She brought up an idea of promoting a family-friendly culture in their company. As per this initiative, all employees were supposed to bring their parents and dear ones to their company/organisation on a declared day. The event was originally meant just for fun and freshness. However, it turned out to be phenomenal, when people developed newer and stronger bonds as a team by knowing and understanding each other better. Moreover, they were gratified to see their parents feel proud of them for the work they do. From then on, the company celebrates 'Bring in your Parents Day' every year. This idea highlights the fact that it is not always enough to just be associated with one's colleagues professionally, to build a successful empire. Sometimes, sharing ones' personal lives also develops stronger ties on the professional front Likewise, the company named ‘Direct Recruitment’ is known for going an extra mile to keep their customers always committed to them.
