Take Your Child to Work Day, Month and Year
I always had the desire to have a fulfilling career. What better place to do that than at a business such as Mars — an organization with great principles, great history, great leadership, great brands and great possibility.
Equally as important was having a rewarding life at home. Balancing my family and my job has always been an important, yet delicate, juggle for me. I feel lucky in that I received a great piece of advice early on in my career, that has made this balancing act much easier and more fulfilling.
The advice I got was simple — take my kids to work. Not just on the annual day, but throughout the year. I took this to heart, and it’s become a big part of my family. Particularly at a place like Mars, where we have chocolate brands, pet brands and more — it’s a fantastic place for a kid to visit!
