The Take Your Co-Worker to Work Day (TYCTWD) experience pairs employees with colleagues in a different role and department, so they can experience the other person's job, consider career options, and build new relationships. TYCTWD is held in 10-12 week cycles, starting with a kickoff meeting at which "shadows" and "hosts" meet up and are provided support and ideas for how to make the experience successful. It ends with a wrap up party at which employees share stories and celebrate their TYCTWD experience. 100% of participants surveyed have found the program to be valuable.
