Well, in all honesty, it’s no secret, but that sure did sound cool, huh?
If you spend any amount of time around the office you will know immediately our strength lies within our employees. They are the rock stars around here. Everything from their attitudes, to their work ethic, to their ideas, to their pursuit to take care of the customers it all builds together to create a culture of teamwork and excellence. Our employees are the heartbeat of the business.
This past Friday we celebrated Employee Appreciation Day. It was just a very small token of appreciation for the very large amount of work they do for the company. We know without the caliber of team that we have we would not be where we are today and where we are going in the future. I am very proud of everyone here and what they bring to the company.
The day started out with a gourmet coffee cart, Bean in the Borough, we brought in to serve the staff. They absolutely loved it. Some of them might have loved it a little too much depending on how many shots of espresso they had and how some people were literally bouncing off the walls this morning. This was the perfect way to kick the day off for the staff.
Next up, we had a group of massage therapists come in from Zeel Massage on Demand. This might have been what everyone was looking forward to most. I know I personally was and they did not disappoint! I literally could have stayed in there the whole day, and I am sure that everyone else felt the same way. I was afraid some people would be useless the rest of the day after their massage but they snapped back to work more relaxed and energized at the same time. This will be happening again around here.
Finally, we had lunch (dinner for our second shift and night team) catered in by the ATL Burger Truck. We love food trucks around here, but this might have been one of the best we have had. The burgers were fantastic and who could pass up on the fries or mac-n-cheese. Hey, what’s a good burger for lunch without a milkshake…yeah, we had those too. Man, it was so good.
Overall, I think everyone had a good day. We probably all gained about 10 pounds but we were all relaxed and I can personally say the mood and atmosphere around here was awesome. Our goal was for the staff to know how much we appreciate them and the very hard work they do, day in and day out. We know they are our secret weapon to provide all of our customers with first class, exceptional customer service like no one else can. We are very proud and appreciative of each of them.
