Bring In Your Parents Day at IDC

I received a message from my brother Jubert, "Hi 'te Joy. May bring in your parents day tomorrow sa office, 2-4pm. If you're free, would love to have you there for me".  Though I'm not feeling so well lately, and I have an event at Nestle, plus Christmas is fast-approaching, I couldn't say no to my brother.

The idea, Bring In Your Parents Day, was spawned when LinkedIn’s researchers discovered that one in three parents do not understand what their child does for a living. LinkedIn seized the opportunity to turn the tide and is now an annual event of LinkedIn. 

I reigned as the bunso for 7 years until Jubert was born. Unlike other kids who are jealous towards their younger siblings, I was so happy when Nonoy came. I remember so many wonderful memories when we were young. Nonoy was and still is a good son and brother.

Nonoy has been with International Data Corporation or IDC for over 12 years now. It is his first job. He was offered jobs by different companies but he stayed loyal with IDC because he love the people he works with. Dahil mapagmahal sa pamilya ang aking kapatid, "parang pamilya lang sa IDC", ika nya. 

Jubert is the Head of Operations in IDC Philippines. He manages the Philippine ICT Market Report Series- as well as syndicated research, which IDC calls Continuous Intelligence Service (CIS), covering various hot topics in the Philippine ICT industry. He authors reports on topics that cover overall IT spending, SME buying behavior, vertical and horizontal industries, channels management, and IT services. His wide range of exposure and market knowledge enables him to work on regional initiatives on IT services, channels and partnering, consumer devices and services, economy, online gaming, and government programs. My brother has been awarded "IDC Asia/Pacific Country Research Quality and Timeliness Award" and "IDC Philippines' Best Employee Growth" award.

We played charade (syempre nanalo team namin!)

Bring In Your Parents has its  benefits for both parents/siblings and the employees. It makes you understand and be proud of your son/brother/sister/wife/husband more.
