22.11.2023 SPANGLER KIDS DAY 2023: Family-friendly workplaces in practice


November 21, 2023, Töging. Today, the family-owned Spangler GmbH in Töging held the first Spangler Kids Day in a new version, a forward-looking initiative that provided the youngest family members with a unique insight into their parents’ working world.

Because of the school holiday on which parents still had to fulfill their professional duties, SPANGLER decided to take care of their employees’ children for half a day. The Spangler Kids Day has taken place several times in the past and was created not only to offer the children a special event during their time off school but also to allow them to get to know their parents’ workplace in a relaxed environment.

Family as a Success Factor

With the Kids Day, the management of Spangler GmbH emphasizes their strong commitment to balancing work and family life, which has already earned them an award as a family-friendly company from the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth. The campaign offers children the opportunity to see their parents from a new perspective and shows how much the company places the value of family at its core. The Spangler Kids Day 2023 began with a warm welcome to the 22 participating children, followed by a group photo and an entertaining introduction game that allowed the youngsters to get to know each other better. The enthusiastic kids were then allowed to prepare a healthy breakfast with the Spangler team. In this way, the day started with fun and a sense of community.

The Highlight – Safe Handling of Electricity

The day’s highlight was undoubtedly the fascinating experiments with homemade battery figures, led by Maria Pfaller and Antonia Aita, who are currently doing an apprenticeship as electronics technicians in automation and systems technology. Like in the real working world, the findings were checked and then recorded. This practical learning emphasizes Spangler’s commitment to promoting education, especially in the natural scientific field. Cornelia Hofmann, a member of the management team, affirms the company’s commitment to equality and diversity: “We are particularly proud to have two young women as trainees in the electronics sector who could provide exciting insights to the children today. At Spangler, there are no limits to career choice!” Monika Ruppert organized the Spangler Kids Day on behalf of the management and was supported in the implementation by a total of six committed apprentices.

Inspiring the Professionals of the Future

The Spangler Kids Day concluded with a highlight as the children visited their parents’ workplaces and gained a first insight into their daily work life. This initiative underscores Spangler’s goal of not only showing appreciation to the parents but also introducing the children to their possible workplace of tomorrow.
