“Career orientation program for children of our staff has several components. First, the company welcomes the initiative of employees, to help children spend theirsummer holidays more meaningfully. Second, it has an important educational underpinning: children see the process of creating a value by their own parents, appreciatetheir enthusiasm and professional qualifications. This is very important in terms of shaping respect for parents. Moreover, through helping parents and their colleagues children feel the team spirit, and become a part of the team. And most importantly, children get a chance to see how many specializations there are and maychoose their future professions more knowledgably. Of course, we are far from the idea that children should choose their parents’ professional paths, but we give them the opportunity to get acquainted with it,” VivaCell-MTS General Manager Ralph Yirikian said.
VivaCell-MTS carries out a number of career development programs for students, as well as open doors for schoolchildren and representatives of different youth organizations.
