    Dina's Bio:
    Whether I am helping a student take the next step after college, facilitating a career workshop or organizing group runs through the trails over the noon hour, I am always working, playing and living well in the great north woods. I came to Duluth and St. Scholastica four years ago. I adore the big city life and still love playing in it, but most of the time I am enjoying the woods and all the beautiful things northern Minnesota has to offer. Connect with me on LinkedIn and follow me on Twitter and Pinterest.

Yay or nay: Take Your Parents to Work Day?

Parents to Work Day

I was stunned when I learned that companies have started hosting “Take Your Parents to Work Day” events in an effort to attract and hold talent and boost employee morale. Seems just like yesterday we coined these folks “helicopter parents.”

Apparently it is the new thing. A Wall Street Journal article published last week said that Google Inc. held its SECOND annual “Take Your Parent to Work Day” last May, hosting more than 2,000 parents at its Mountain View, California headquarters. And LinkedIn Inc. will host its first “Bring In Your Parents Day” this November. LinkedIn also plans to roll out how-to guides for businesses hoping to host similar events.

(On a cool side note, the WSJ article also mentions Northwestern Mutual and Enterprise— fab companies that routinely recruit our beautiful St. Scholastica Saints. Oh yea!)

Well, earlier this semester my husband and I learned that we are expecting our first baby. My head spins imagining what the new thing will be when our youngster hits the job force. Life is amazing.

So I say YAY. Anything to build employee morale is a good thing. 😉

What do you think?

Happy fall everyone. What a great time of year in Duluth.
