Blackhawk Celebrates “Bring Your Kids to Work Day”
On April 28, 2016, Blackhawk held its annual “Bring Your Kids to Work” event, a day when parents and guardians are able to bring their children to the office to give them a glimpse of what they do during their day and ultimately, inspire their career aspirations.
Kids between the ages of 8 and 12 participated in Blackhawk’s Pleasanton, Phoenix and Reno offices. The structured day began with remarks from Blackhawk’s leadership team, followed by presentations from the Engineering, Accounting, and Human Resources departments, among others.
After shadowing their parents, the children took pictures in a photo booth and participated in other fun activities, including a bean bag toss and craft time. In a “Going Green” exercise, the kids were given small plants to re-pot to encourage environmental responsibility. Shaved ice and other delicious refreshments were provided throughout the day.
We hope that the event encouraged our kids to work to achieve their future goals. Thank you to all of our employees and families that participated and contributed to yet another successful company event!
