Montego Bay’s Kids Day Out 2015
Author: Reneece Saunders
Twinkling eyes, wide grins and excitement were what the team members of Vistaprint’s Montego Bay, Jamaica office stumbled upon when they arrived at work in the morning. Employee’s kids were flooding into the engagement center. It was the annual Kids Day Out, a day that will never be forgotten by employees or their kids. For the second year in a row, the team members of Vistaprint were able to take their kids’ (ages 3-12) to work. This year proved to be even bigger and better than the last. To start off the day, kids’ got a tour of the office building, allowing them to see some of the perks their parents enjoy every day at the office.
After their tour of the building, the anxious children were released to the transformed football field outside the office. Activities for kids to chose from included: a carousel, a Ferris wheel, 3 bounce-a-bouts, a game tent, trikes, face painting and one of the funniest clowns. Thought that was all? Then think again! The Engagement Team brought not one, but three, elements of surprise: a colossal water slide, a huge pool and a zoo which housed a spider monkey, ‘Rex’ the talking parrot, a snake, iguana and a baby crocodile. By participating in activities, kids were able to win a wide variety of prizes, all while feasting on burgers, hot dogs, chicken and chips, nuggets, wedges, snow cones, popcorn, juice and good ole water.
After the event ended, the Engagement Team could only beam at the success of the day and the look of satisfaction on both the parents and the children’s faces. With an array of fun and games, no one left the office disappointed.
