Herndon, VA, April 29, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Associates invited daughters, sons, relatives, and friends in grades 2-12 to attend. The goal of this year’s event was to inspire, educate, and encourage girls and boys to realize their potential to make a difference in the world today and to pursue their passions for the future.
The day began with the children participating in a new hire orientation event followed by learning activities, simulated client appointments, and team building. The highlight of the day was during an interactive company wide Live video web conference hosted by President Jon Hile when Trevor Steinmetz, son of General Manager Matt Steinmetz announced to the company, “The best part about this day was spending time with my dad.”
“National believes allowing children to experience what a parent or mentor does during the work day is important, but showing them the value of their education and providing them an opportunity to share how they envision the future is key to them achieving success,” said Jon Hile, President of National Corporate Housing.
National created a formal curriculum that allowed children to receive an excused absence from school. All children in attendance have an opportunity to participate in a nationwide Essay Contest with a chance to win $250 for their school. Contest winners will be announced on May 9th.
