    Pros

    Discounts,meeting new people,making new friends.

    Cons

    Making employees,Go to work at 9:am on fathers day to take a training,that can be done at any other time,shows lack of sensitivity to associates and their families.

    Advice to Management

    Try and show some empathy to your subordinates and their families,by not making another training seem more important than quality time with family on Fathers day!.
    I believe making this mandatory traing at another time, will raise moral as well as make us more productive.
