Aquilent’s 2014 “Bring Your Kids to Work Day” Celebrates National Theme: Plant a Seed, Grow a Future

Aquilent, a recognized leading provider of Mobile, Web and Cloud solutions shaping the next generation of technology for the federal government, has announced that this year’s Bring Your Kids to Work Day will celebrate the national Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day theme of “Plant a Seed, Grow a Future.”

Who: Aquilent and its employees

What: Bring Your Kids to Work Day

When: Thursday, April 24, 2014

Where: Aquilent headquarters (Laurel, Maryland)

Why: As our children look toward places they want to work someday, it will be important for them to understand what makes a great company. At this year’s Bring Your Kids to Work Day, Aquilent will host an entire day of activities supporting the nationwide theme, “Plant a Seed, Grow a Future.”

Recognized for the past six years as a Top Company and Best Place to Work, Aquilent understands that it takes the seeds of a talented workforce to grow a great company. Based on that knowledge, Aquilent will help its employees’ children learn that same lesson through group activities such as building a “great company” tree, and by planting a seed in their own pot to take home and care for as a representation of the lessons taught throughout the day.
