Take Your Child to Work Day, or as we like to call it, Junior Vaulter Day, has always been an exciting event at Commvault. Supporting and celebrating our families is an integral part of Commvault Life.
Over the years, our Tinton Falls, New Jersey headquarters has hosted over 400 children for a fun-filled day of activities to make our Junior Vaulters feel special, appreciated, and, if I’m being honest, so tired at the end of the day that their parents are thrilled to take them home for an easy bedtime! Highlights of past events include the lizard man, singers, a magician, therapy dogs…the list goes on and on. In our larger office locations around the world, we have held similar events, making it a day our Junior Vaulters talk about all year – and for years to follow.
Despite the virtual environment we’ve had to adjust to over the past year, we knew that the pandemic couldn’t stop our momentum for Junior Vaulter Day! At this time last year, we were just beginning to navigate through the “new normal” of a completely remote workforce…yet we were able to quickly put together a virtual event unlike any we have hosted in the past. And guess what? It was an absolute success. This year, even though we are still working in a completely remote environment, we are just as committed to celebrating and empowering our next generation of Vaulters!
For this year’s Junior Vaulter Day, we hosted three live sessions for our global community where we discussed the Vaulter and Junior Vaulter’s superpowers, created our own superhero names and even did some superhero exercising! Because at the end of the day, we are ALL superheroes in our own ways. There was also a virtual scavenger hunt for our Junior Vaulters to participate in that included STEM experiments, like a tornado in a bottle and tissue box catapult, as well as creating your own Superhero badge and Comic Strip.
And what made this celebration even more special today was that this year Commvault is marking an amazing milestone – 25 years as a company. That’s right… 25 years! We started off this week with our global CVReady21 FY22 Kick Off Meeting and have closed the week with our Junior Vaulters event. Wow, what an exciting time for us all, as we celebrate the bright future of Commvault together.
