The Only Life Advice You'll Ever Need

Remi recently celebrated LinkedIn’s Bring In Your Parents Day for the first time and it was a huge success! Since Remi is such a niche business, equipment maintenance management programs aren’t exactly part of typical dinner table conversations, it can be difficult to describe exactly what employees do at work. Because one third of parents don’t understand what their children do at work all day, LinkedIn created Bring In Your Parents Day.


Remi opened the doors and employees were given the opportunity to show their parents how they spend their day. Employees were also able to introduce their parents to the boss and coworkers, have lunch together, and say thank you for the help, advice, and inspiration their parents have given over the years.


During a catered lunch from Libretto’s, employees were asked to write the best advice they’ve gotten from their parents and parents were asked to write down the best advice they’ve given to their children. The results were amazing!


Below are the best pieces of life advice you’ll ever need:
