The vehicle giveaways will take place on November 11th at 60 of Progressive’s Service Centers across the country.

Several organizations are partnering with Progressive to make Keys to Progress a reality, counting the National Auto Body Council (NABC) and its body shop members, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Veracity Research Investigations Inc.

They’ve been restored for the veterans as an extension of the NABC Recycled Rides® program. At more than 130 vehicles, it is once again the single largest one-day vehicle donation for the program, surpassing last year’s record donation of 117 cars.

LinkedIn, As jobs change to suit a new digital world, parents struggle to keep up, according to new research released by LinkedIn, the worlds largest online professional network.

Taking in responses from 503 current workers and 922 parents of current workers in Singapore, the research found that Singaporean parents may be struggling to understand many of the technical roles that exist recently, with only 12% of Singaporean workers claiming their parents are very familiar with what they do for a living and only around half (53%) believing their parent knows what their job title is.

The survey revealed that while the majority of Singaporean parents could confidently describe more traditional job titles like teacher, lawyer, and personal assistant, few knew what titles like UI Designer, data scientist or social media manager entailed.

The study was launched in the run-up to LinkedIns third annual Bring in Your Parents Day (BIYP) on November 5 which aims to bridge this knowledge gap. Some companies in Singapore, counting IDC, Tickled Media, Happy Marketer and Click2View, will also be participating as businesses recognize the importance of engaging their employees parents. Having parents visit their childrens workplaces would give them a better idea of what their children do in their careers, assisting to encourage better support networks in the world of work.
