Happy National Working Parents Day!
DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION |
At RSM, we have strong focus on diversity and inclusion, and it’s in that spirit of accepting and supporting all of our people that our Family First employee network group (ENG) celebrates National Working Parents Day (NWPD).
In the event that you’re not familiar with it. NWPD is observed each year on September 16, providing an annual opportunity to recognize parents who work outside of their homes. At RSM, many of our people are working parents, and we understand that their needs and challenges are often unique. Our Family First ENG provides our people with a supportive network of peers who can share stories, tips and techniques to help one another succeed both professionally and on the home front.
Here at RSM, we celebrate our working parents through our annual Working Mother and Working Father of the Year awards, a few fun family-focused internal contests and spotlights, and through a number of seminars (ex: Life Meets Work, Financial Planning 101, Parenting Education, etc.) available to our people. We also have new parent mentor groups and provide new parent gift baskets for our people as they grow their families.
Being a parent is great. Having a successful career is great. And having a group of caring, like-minded people who “get it” when it comes to balancing the demands of both is priceless.
We salute all of our working parents – our collective hat is off to you and your families!
