Nearly 200 children reported for ‘duty' on ‘Bring your child to work' day at Microsoft India's Bangalore office recently.

It was a day when children finally got to see where their parents work, and catch a glimpse of that mysterious place called “the office” that keeps their parents engaged for the better part of the day.

On ‘Bring your child to work' day at the Microsoft India office at Embassy Golf Links here, held last week, children of employees got to attend office. A fun-filled version of the hectic working day, over 200 children reported for “duty” and participated in various activities.

Employees too were excited to bring their children along and participate in various activities. This event is being celebrated across almost all Microsoft offices in the country for the fifth consecutive year. 

Explaining the idea behind the event, Binu Philip, HR-Director, Microsoft, said, “This employee-driven initiative aims to familiarise our employees' children with the fun culture at Microsoft, while giving them an opportunity to interact, learn, and inspire environmental awareness through fun and games.”

Sumit, Group Manager, Microsoft, who has been bringing his seven-year-old daughter to such events since she was a toddler, said: “My daughter takes pride in accompanying me to my workplace.”
