Wiley Rein & Fielding Hosts Expanded “Take Your Child to Work” Day Program

April 26, 2006

Washington, DC—Wiley Rein & Fielding, a law firm known for promoting a family-friendly culture, will host more than 60 children as part of its 2006 “Take Your Child to Work” Day program.  For the first time, firm employees are invited to bring their teenagers, in addition to the younger set, to experience a typical day in the office.  Two structured programs—one for ages 9-12 and one for ages 13-17—will involve the participation of firm members at all levels, from Managing Partner Richard E. Wiley to the firm’s administrative departments and staff.

Among the many planned activities are challenges based on the T.V. show “The Apprentice,” team building exercises, contests and visits to the firm’s administrative departments—including marketing, accounting, human resources and information services—where the teens will gain a broader understanding of the law firm and how it operates. 

For the last 14 years WRF has hosted organized programs for its employees' children as part of a comprehensive staff appreciation week that features awards and a wide range of special events.
