Have you ever wondered what it’s like to work at Publishers Clearing House? To hold a PCH Big Check in your hands? To walk through the halls of the offices where Danielle Lam, Todd Sloane and Howie Guja work every day?
Well last Thursday, April 28th, Publishers Clearing House joined more than 37 million Americans at over 3.5 million workplaces across the country as we hosted our first-ever Take Your Child to Work Day event! This was much more than a career day for us at PCH. 34 children got to experience first-hand the magic of PCH, and see all the hard work, energy and spirit that go into everything we do here.
The morning started with a welcome brunch, which kicked off with a fun video from the Prize Patrol. The Prize Patrol team happened to be out of the office that day, as they were already out on the road for our April 29th prize delivery, but they still wanted to send a warm welcome to the children!
Then we had the group test games from our pch.com website. As you know, we’re always looking to make our games as enjoyable as possible, so it was great to see how much fun they were having!
From there, they learned all about the world of Winning Experiences from our Contest Manger, Maryann Carter. And because we’re all about winning here, the kids all walked away with their very own prize!
The morning ended with a behind-the-scenes look at our Social Media Department with yours truly. I told them all about our PCH Fan Page on Facebook, the PCH Blog and our YouTube page – and how much we LOVE interacting with fans like you on these platforms! The kids even got to try their hands at being social media experts themselves by coming up with their own Facebook posts, blog headlines, and tweets!
In the afternoon, the real fun began as the children got an up close and personal tour of our photo studio, where lots of PCH magic happens. They even got to take pictures with personalized Big Checks we made just for them!
All in all, it was an awesome day, and we absolutely loved having the kids here with us! Most importantly, we loved seeing the inspired looks on the faces of the kids.
We hope you’ve enjoyed going behind the scenes with us for our first ever Take Your Child to Work Day event! Tell us… if you had the opportunity to visit PCH Headquarters, what activities would you want to participate in?
