A Glimpse into CBIZ MHM Memphis During Busy Season

Ice Cream SundaeWith the final April 30th deadline past us, it is officially post-busy season at the CBIZ MHM Memphis office. An accountant's job is quite taxing during the first quarter, but we thought we'd share a small glimpse into what keeps our staff alert and moving during a time typically spent at an office desk. 


1. Food- The ultimate necessity for any office during busy season. Our weekly fruit deliveries were balanced with a chips & dip snack day, ice cream sundae bar and fun holiday goodies. 

We like to switch things up at our office and bring unique snack options as well. A fan favorite was our Smoothie Bar courtesy of Panini Catering

Smoothie Bar 2. Raffles - Our 'Tuesday Giveaways' included giftcards to favorite restuarants and shops around town. A true 'luck of the draw' competition is easy and allows each employee a chance at winning without having to participate in a set activity. 

3. Competitions - A new competition added to our office this year was our Busy Season Pedometer Challenge. Pedometers were given out free of cost to those wanting to participate in the 10-week step challenge. Prizes including health magazine subscriptions, a spa day and personal training lessons served as incentives to get people moving during a usually static time of year. Other competitions included a March Madness bracket challenge and an Oscar's ballot challenge. 

Massage on the Go4. Massages- Sometimes you just need a little R & R. We scheduled ten minute massage breaks through Massage on the Go for our staff working through the weekend.  

What does your office do during busy season? How do you stay active while busy at work? Leave us a comment below and let us know!
