Our busiest time of the year can often be overwhelming and stressful. The Carolina Region has managed to find time to push back the stress and plan events to provide some relief to their team. Debbie Jones out of Raleigh came across the opportunity to send their team to a taping of the Price is Right. While everyone wasn’t able to attend, a dozen of their team members were able to head to Durham. Nobody was called upon to participate in the show, but they all had a great time.
They also enjoyed a few more activities in October. The producers and hunters had an appreciation breakfast for the retention/client management team to say thank you for their hard work and to keep hanging in there when the going gets tough! It is appreciative gestures like this that remind your peers how grateful you are for their support. On Halloween, offices enjoyed cookies and snacks for employees as a simple gesture as well as a way to celebrate the holiday.
Their plans for the rest of the year include a range of celebrating their successes, celebrating each other and impacting their community. What are the holidays without an office potluck? Six of the Carolina offices will enjoy the culinary talents of their coworkers for a hearty meal. While enjoying their comfort food, they’ll write holiday cards for our U.S. troops to show appreciation for their sacrifices. November will be wrapped up with a Thanksgiving Food Drive so they can deliver non-perishable items to their local food bank.
To bring a solid end to the season, the Carolina offices will all meet in a central location to break bread for the holidays. After enjoying food and a few laughs, they’re delivering holiday baskets to Ronald McDonald houses that are located near each of their hubs.
The team has really worked hard to build employee relationships as well as with those outside the community. Debbie Jones says, “Because we’ve grown so much, it’s important for us to come together as a team to support each other and our communities.” This will surely enhance their team and holiday spirit.
