For Grant Thomas, describing his job at Voices.com to his family was never an easy task. Grant is a Senior Project Manager at the growing London company and he relies on cutting-edge software to search, audition and connect voice talent to clients.
His mom Linda always believed he spent his days listening to audition tapes.
Voices.com opened their office doors to the parents of their staff in their first Bring your Parents to Work Day. The event aimed to educate parents about what their kids actually do.
“We read a report by LinkedIn that showed 1 in 3 parents don’t really understand what their children do at work,” said David Ciccarelli, CEO of Voices.com. “The report also indicated that the vast majority of parents are interested in learning more.”
The event was a twist on the traditional Bring Your Kids to Work Day, welcoming family members from more than half their staff to the office.
“It’s my opportunity to also thank the parents for raising such great people,” said Ciccarelli on the motivations behind the event.
Grant took the opportunity to walk his mom through what he does on a daily basis, showing her how he utilizes sophisticated software to make his job easy and efficient.
“She definitely knows more about the nuts and bolts of my work now,” said Grant. “It’s tough for people to get what I do.”
