In The Mother of All Reviews, six unsuspecting Klickster moms show up to their scheduled performance reviews, only to be brought to tears when they realize the reviews are from their families–not their colleagues. Their children and partners pre-recorded their feedback–messages of love and appreciation ranging from: "She was truly our Pandemic Czar" and "the matriarch of our entire team" to "She never gives up on achieving her goals." The moms were captured on hidden camera reacting with astonishment and tears of joy.
"Creating this video tribute has been a labor of love," said Klick Health CEO Lori Grant. "Moms have always been among the hardest-working people in the world and that’s become even more true during the pandemic as they’ve taken on additional roles and become their children’s daycare providers, tutors, and nurses."
According to Motherly’s "2022 State of Motherhood" survey, of the 47 percent of U.S. moms who reported being their family’s primary income earners, half also handle the majority of household chores (up from 40 percent five years ago).
To help celebrate the amazing contributions of working moms and all moms, Grant said the feel-good three-minute production ends by encouraging viewers to pay tribute to the moms in their lives. It also directs mothers, who may have put their careers on hold to care for their families during the pandemic and are looking to restart their careers, to visit PathForward.org.
"We’re thrilled that Klick Health is honoring moms through this heartwarming video tribute," said Path Forward Executive Director Tami Forman. "Millions of moms left the workforce over the last two years, and 25 percent of women considered leaving the workforce or downshifting their careers. We’re here to give caregivers – especially moms – at all stages of their careers a jump-start back to paid work."
"We’re proud to work with Path Forward on The Mother of All Reviews to help ensure moms know how important they are on Mother’s Day and every day," said Grant.
