The annual My Family Weekend is back again! Running from 6 September, Friday to 8 September, Sunday, this presents a great opportunity for all employers to show their commitment towards building family-friendly workplaces and strong families in Singapore. As 6 September falls on Teachers’ Day school holiday, pre-school centres and schools will be closed and parents need the additional support to take care of their young child. Hence, your action as an employer is critical in creating a family-friendly workplace environment so that family life is achievable. Pledge your support for our families by having these family-friendly workplace options on 6 September:
More than 250 employers pledged support for My Family Weekend 2018 by putting in place family-friendly practices at the workplace in celebration of My Family Weekend last year.

My Family Weekend - Employer Support Pledge
If your company is thinking of organising a Bring Your Family to Work Day (BYFTWD) on 6 September in celebration of My Family Weekend, here are some options to help you get started:
Companies are welcome to apply for a complimentary FAMILY 365 workshop as part of the BYFTWD’s programme. This is a suite of complimentary one to two-hour Family Life Education programmes available for workplaces and community touchpoints. Some popular programmes include 120-minutes Parent – Work-Life Harmony, the interactive workshop, Discovering Your Kid's Personality and more! For the full list of programmes and to find out more, please visit www.familiesforlife.sg/family-365..
Employees, who feel their bosses are supportive towards their family, are more motivated, engaged and loyal to the company. How can you inspire employees to be more committed? Meet My Boss - a meaningful take on 'Bring Your Child to Work' - is your answer! Show appreciation for employees by inviting their children to meet the boss and use the thoughtful programme for parent-child bonding and community fostering. By investing in their lives outside work, you'll ignite a healthier, happier work environment. Download a free Meet My Boss Toolkit to learn some recommended activities for the day.
