Family day is one such initiative; in which management team can strengthen their employees connect. This fun-activity based event provides the management team to know their people emotional, family side.This year family day was not only held for entertainment but also to provide opportunity for employees and to know their management and families as this event gets all employees together on a common platform. Family day provides an opportunity to promote awareness of issues and relating to families and also organizational work, spouse or parents’ responsibility and challenges and also to increase knowledge of the social, economic and demographic processes affecting families and the organizational work. An employee’s family provides critically important support for the employee. Yet, in many situations, employees’ families have never even seen where their spouse, parent, or child goes to each day to work. By having a day and inviting employees’ families in such event, we can also help bridge this gap between work and home. As a result, this leads to better understanding of their family member’s jobs and place of work, and able to provide much-needed support from home.
