When we heard about LinkedIns ‘Bring In Your Parents Day’ a few months ago we were dying to get involved!

Being a family run business we love any occasion to bring in our folks and get them involved in the Cummins Mellor way of life, so Bring In Your Parents Day on the 6th November 2014 was the perfect excuse!

Surprisingly 1 in 3 parents don’t know what their child does at work, these statistics inspired the networking tool- Linkedin to create ‘Bring In Your Parents Day’. Due to the success of the previous year’s BIYP day Linkedin have decided to carry on this brilliant occasion which allows parents to find out exactly what their children do whilst getting to meet their colleagues!

The day was a roaring success, Operations Director Michelle Mellor baked cakes and there was also a quiz for the parents to take part in. Each parent had a tour of the office and Jodie’s dad even answered a few calls!

Everyone we have spoken to has loved having the opportunity to see what their son or daughter does and are even more proud than they already were! Here’s to next year!
