Wagman Hosts "Take Your Child to Work Day" Event
On Friday, August 4, 2023, Wagman hosted their own summer version of “Take Your Child to Work Day”, for both of their Pennsylvania and Virginia offices. Employees were invited to bring their children or grandchildren to the event for a fun day of construction themed activities.
Parents and children from the PA office held their event at York College of Pennsylvania, where they visited three active construction projects on the campus – the Appell Horticultural Center Addition, the fountain renovation, and the façade replacement at the library. They built structures out of popsicle sticks, talked about how safety is involved in their daily activities and how wearing the proper safety gear is important. In Virginia, participants began their morning at the Dinwiddie office with a stretch and flex and toolbox talk, followed by a bridge building contest and creating concrete handprints. Both locations had estimating contests, an interactive presentation about the company history, construction careers and current projects. Prior to lunch, there was an “equipment rodeo”, where children could climb on and learn about the different pieces of construction equipment.
