H & H INDUSTRIES, INC. INVITES YOUTHS FOR BRING YOUR DAUGHTERS AND SONS TO WORK DAY
Madison, WI – Locally owned H & H Industries, Inc. proudly participated in its inaugural Bring Your Daughters and Sons to Work Day on April 24, 2014.
The theme this year was “Plant a Seed, Grow a Future”. The children were invited to come into the office and learn what happens at a mechanical contractor’s office. “Kids are our future and for their education we should offer them many options and opportunities. And what child doesn’t want to come to work with their parent?” states Mark Reed, H & H Industries Operations Manager.
Giving Children Perspective into the Construction World
With so many youths participating, they were able to explore a variety of careers at H & H. “HHI has been really supportive of the program and this year’s theme, ‘Plant a Seed, Grow a Future’. There are many different opportunities and careers at H & H Industries alone” said Marcy Provost, H & H Field Personnel & Safety Assistant. “H & H offers a plethora of jobs, from the skilled trades to engineers to office support staff to project management” her children Bethany age 5 and Joshua age 7 participated in this year’s program.
The outlook on construction has drastically changed over the years and we are seeing an increase in construction but a decrease in youth getting in the construction industry. H & H is affiliated with multiple organizations, such as Local Unions, MSC-Mechanical and Sheetmetal Contractors, MCAA Mechanical Contractors Association of America, MAPC-Mechanical and Plumbing Contractors, AGC- Americas General Contractors, and more that have been reaching out to students and veterans in Dane County and introducing them to mechanical contracting. Students and veterans are introduced to trades such as sheet metal, steam fitting, and plumbing. These are great specialty trades to work in that allow hands-on work and can come with great compensation packages.
By introducing children to these opportunities at a young age, it lets them know that there are many options in life after high school. Paul Christensen, Owner and CEO of H & H supports the Bring Your Children to Work event because as a parent he wants to instill in his children H & H’s core values such as hard work, responsibility, and discipline. He brought his son Taylor, age 7, to work to show him the importance of these values and what it takes to achieve your goals. Paul poses this question to parents, “Do you see the importance of your child’s future?”
