Something for Everyone on Bring Our Kids to Work Day

Invite your child(ren), grandchild(ren), niece, nephew or other kid in your life. Get involved as a colleague, whether or not you bring a kid. There’s a role for everyone, and three ways to participate:

Children ages 8 to 13 years will likely gain the most from the on-site experience. Talk to your manager if you want to bring a child who is younger or older than ages 8 to 13. (Or you could use any of the worksheets with a younger or older child at another time!)

Look for details about your site’s events in local communication. In general, here are the kinds of activities you can expect on site:

  • Leadership Welcome
  • One-on-one time with fun activities to help your kid learn about News Corp, your job, department and team (see worksheets for ideas)
  • Scavenger Hunt with Tour of Building
  • Co-worker “Meet & Greets”
  • “Tag-Alongs” to meetings
  • Department “Show & Tells”

  • If your business is planning an on-site event:
  • Volunteer to help plan the activities for the day.
  • Play a role in a specific activity. For example, you could lead a tour, teach a short class, let kids interview you and/or take photos.
  • Contact your Human Resources Business Partner or send an email to employeebenefits@newscorp.com and let us know you want to help!
  • Talk to your manager about what your department or team could do together on the day of the event. Be sure to include anyone working from home. For example:
  • Plan a group meeting agenda that includes things for the kids to do and say.
  • Organize a “Meet & Greet” so the kids can meet everyone in the department one-on-one for a brief time, to learn about different kinds of jobs.
  • If you’re a leader/manager: Take time to meet and interact with the kids. Look for other ways to be involved. You could kick off an on-site event, teach a short class or help guide a group activity.

Still have a question?

  • Our goal is to connect the kids of News Corp to the businesses and people of News Corp.
  • We want the Day to be a fun and meaningful experience for everyone involved: kids, parents and co-workers.
  • Giving the kid(s) in your life a first-hand look at your job, workplace and business can strengthen your relationship, introduce them to new possibilities and build their self-confidence.
  • For all of us as co-workers, it’s a chance to reconnect and gain new perspectives on our work.

For on-site events:

  • Kids ages 8 to 13 years are likely to gain the most from the Day’s activities.
  • If you want to involve a kid older or younger, talk to your manager so you can plan an approach that works for you, your kid(s) and co-workers. For example:
  • A 5-year-old might participate with you for just a couple key hours.
  • An 18-year-old might attend a meeting with you or have a mock interview with a leader.

For those who need to participate from home:

  • A variety of activity worksheets and other info is available on this site to help you and your kid(s) participate from home.
  • The worksheets are designed for (or are adaptable to) kids ranging from ages 3 to 18 years.
  • Absolutely. We know not everyone has school-age kids. You may have a school-age grandkid, niece, nephew or other significant kid in your life. They will be welcome.
  • Everyone can participate as a co-worker. For example, you can show your co-worker’s kid something about your job or how you and their parent work together. Or help your department plan an activity involving everyone.
  • If your location is having an on-site event, volunteer to help plan or guide group activities. If you’re not sure who to contact at your location, send an email to employeebenefits@newscorp.com and we’ll get you connected.
  • One of the benefits of Bring Our Kids to Work Day is to help you strengthen your relationship with your kid(s). Of course, there will still be deadlines and other work priorities. Plan with your manager and co-workers, so you can give your kid a good day and still meet priorities. It’s worth it!
  • Get acquainted with your business/location plan for the Day. Talk to your manager and co-workers in advance. With planning, you, your kids and co-workers can have a meaningful, fun and productive day together.
  • Keep in mind, this website is mainly for information applicable to everyone across all News Corp businesses.
