Hazel Baillard, sanitary fitter
The 30-year-old told us about her job with great enthusiasm, and encouraged others who might be interested to follow in her footsteps.
The future day is an opportunity for pupils to discover professions they may not have thought of as well as get to know various facets of the professional world. Below, a review of future day 2019, which took place throughout Switzerland on 14 November 2019, and in which pupils could discover all of the professional diversity of Bouygues Energies & Services.
The day began with a little theory. An electrical planner explained his work to his children. Following this, two trainees, a commercial clerk and heating technician, told them something about these trained professions. The children then accompanied their parents to their workplace to find out more about their daily work and tasks. For many of them, this was their first insight into the working world.
After a meal together, it was time for the little ones to become active. The pupils visited the location of EPFL, where Bouygues Energies & Services was conducting a major project: the complete renewal of the thermal infrastructure. They visited the systems and took part in workshops on the subjects of electricity, heating and ventilation, which were conducted by the apprentices and trainees of the company. The smiles on the faces of the children and adults pointed to a successful day.
Last Wednesday, it was future day in Ticino as well. Three adolescents aged 13 had the opportunity to accompany their parents at work for a whole day. The pupils were able to get to know the profession of their parents, the working environment and their colleagues, the company reality and all the professions that Bouygues and Kummler+Matter have to offer.
The pupils visited one of the biggest building sites in Ticino, the "Campus in Lugano" on this day, which was organised by the administrative assistant Samanta OLIVIERI. They had the opportunity there to perform several handicraft tasks themselves. Conclusion Parents and children were all happy; at the end of the day, two of the three boys stated that they could imagine following the profession of their father some day.
Thanks to everyone, who helped to make this day something special for the children. We are already looking forward to future day 2020!
