(CNS Local Life): Employees at Caribbean Utilities Company (CUC) got the chance to share their workday with their children during the Easter holiday break, for the company’s first “Sons and Daughters to Work Day”. The event was spearheaded by the human resources department, as manager Phil Jackson explained: “The programme provided the opportunity for parents to bring their children to CUC for a day of fun and educational activities. We wanted to expose our children to what we do on a daily basis and teach them from an early age how they can acquire the skills needed to take them into the world of work.”

In the financial services department Renee, daughter of Barbara Aiken-Moseley, saw how her mother keeps her financial reports and records properly filed. Reflecting on her daughter’s experience, Aiken-Moseley said, “Renee enjoyed her day so much, she wanted to return the next day.”

Kelsi, the daughter of Ravi Persad, manager, internal audit and risk management, said of the experience: “The CUC take-your-child-to-work day was a very good idea. The persons who supervised us were very friendly and educated us on the power plant by showing us a very informative video and then explaining it to us after. I had fun with the other children. “

In the electrical maintenance department, Chad Powell showed his son, Chad Jr, and daughter, Aaliyah, what his role entails as a senior supervisor/scheduler. Chad Jr. enjoyed his experience of learning about the scheduling of operations, and Aaliyah said, “I really liked it. I learnt a lot and had plenty of fun. I hope that we may be able to have this experience again.”

The programme, which caters to children between the ages of 8 and 15, will now become an annual event coordinated around the Easter holidays.
