BDS Sponsors a National Kids At Work Day

Bookmark and Share

On Thursday, April 24, 2013 BDS participated in National Kids At Work Day. For over a decade, BDS has organized an event for our employee's children and the Director, Paul Scarlett strongly supports the fun and educational event. The kids that joined us this year had the opportunity to "ride-a-along" with a BDS inspector, tour the Permit Center, learn how to use our mapping system and gather a better understanding of what their guardians do at work.

The kids bring great energy to the workplace, ask a lot of good questions and make new suggestions that can sometimes simplify our workload.
