Ahoy, mateys! Last Thursday, we hosted our annual Pirate Day filled with a “pick your poison” espresso bar, a pirate-themed photo booth, and many wacky pirate costumes (shout out to Alan who won Blackbeard’s Best Buckaneer!). We set up a round of minute-to-win-it challenges with an incentive for the winner to pillage the treasure chest filled with candy and gift cards. To top it off, we had a catered lunch with a treasure map cake which we ate together in the break room. The day would not have been complete without plenty of pirate speak and pirate shenanigans (thanks for stealing the treasure, Kyle!).
Our company culture has an underlying theme of “work hard, play hard” which is personafied by this day of pirate shenanigans and silliness. We all look forward to this annual holiday and find that aside from simply having a great time it enhances our creative thinking and brings us closer as a team.
