Sony Family Day was held on Feb 10th at Sony's Beijing office in China. This day provides employees an opportunity to invite family members to their office. It also allows the family members to better understand Sony's business and the work done by employees, by seeing the actual workplace and talking with staff. It was the first time Sony Family Day was held at the Beijing office.
At the reception, family members were greeted warmly by staff and presented with a specially designed passport and badge.
Most family members had never before been to the Beijing office, and so they looked around with great curiosity. Kids even sat proudly at their parents' desks.
Staff from Sony Explora Science (Beijing), an interactive science museum open to the public in Beijing, also participated in this event, putting on a "scientific experiment live show" before all the guests.
Finally, Mr. Rintaro Miyoshi, Director and EVP, CFO of Sony China, extended his sincere gratitude to all family members in attendance for supporting Sony China's employees day in and day out.
Sony Family Day is an excellent way to help children and family members learn more about parents' workplace and to deepen the connection between families and the company. It is not only a special day for families and children, during their winter vacations, but also a meaningful day for employees at the Beijing office as well, giving them the chance to improve their work-life balance. Ultimately, it also became a memorable occasion for all the kids, as their very first time visiting Sony.
