To ring in summer, we invited our employees in Leobendorf and their families to join us last Friday to celebrate Family Day. During the afternoon, everyone had the opportunity to show off their work place to their families and to have them meet their colleagues, bosses and friends from other departments.
Starting at 1 p.m., employees took their families on a walk through the production halls. In the break room, videos and posters presented all departments working at the company site in Leobendorf. To visualize the work done by our employees, a machine in the show room produced fresh wafer sticks for everyone to try. Definitely a highlight! Another aspect of how it’s ensured that end products are perfect was demonstrated with a thermal imaging camera: usually it checks the temperature of wafer sheets, but on Family Day it was used to take one-of-a-kind family photos instead, which was a fun way to learn more about how it works.
A whole bunch of different, fun activities for adults and kids made sure that everyone had a great afternoon. At the face painting station kids were transformed into butterflies and kittens, and they got to be creative themselves painting the floor with chalk. For those with a wilder side, an archery station allowed them to prove themselves, and after a turn in the bouncy castle most people needed to be reinvigorated with coffee and cake in our marquee. And it wouldn’t be a summer party without an ice cream cart of course: 37 different choices helped everyone cool down.
Having a cozy get-together in the marquee was the ideal occasion to have a chat, especially with colleagues from other departments that one doesn’t see every day. We ended a great afternoon enjoying some food together and relaxing – and all employees and their families got to go home with a tombola prize and a good bye present.
