April 18, 2017

Last Friday morning, the CBIZ Easter Bunnies worked quickly and quietly, sneaking around the office hiding Easter eggs for our First Annual Easter Egg Hunt. And naturally because it was the first (of what we hope to be many) egg hunt, we had to make it a complete surprise! You never know how grown adults will view the prospect of an egg hunt, but we were relieved to see that EVERYONE was ready to play - I mean, who wouldn't want to win gift cards and candy, right?

As it's the end of busy season, we didn't want to the hiding spots to be too difficult, but we also couldn't just give the prizes away - so we had fun with it!

(Our egg hiders were very proud of this hiding spot.)

Much to our disappointment, the first of two Golden Eggs was found 10 minutes, but the 2nd was found last - so we didn't do too badly at hiding them. Next year, we'll be finding MUCH harder spots!

Overall, our First Annual Easter Egg Hunt was a great success, and helped all of us take our minds off of the stresses of busy season for a few minutes. We'll definitely be doing this again next year!

Some of our winners...

(Pictured: Jianjie Li, Tax Pro. Not only did Li find the 2nd Golden Egg, but it was his first egg hunt ever! That's got to be the most fun case of beginner's luck we've ever seen.)




February 8, 2017

It feels like the Holidays were just here, but we’re already in February. As with most people, we’re determined to make (and keep!) at least one New Years’ resolution – ours being blogging more frequently. We hope you enjoy hearing about what we’ll be up to this year, and learning more about our amazing team!


January went by quickly for us here at CBIZ. We ushered in the New Year with a busy schedule full of team activities, training, and other community events to help us set the tone for what’s sure to be a VERY busy tax season. Some of our January highlights...

Busy Season Kick-Off Meeting w/ our CEO Jerry Grisko

Each January, the Phoenix office comes together to prepare for the upcoming busy season and to review our plan for the coming months. We usually have snacks and swag to give away, but this year we had a special treat – a visit from our CEO, Jerry!

It was great to hear directly from our fearless leader, and to see what he has in store for CBIZ in 2017 and beyond. Special thanks to Jerry for making his way to Phoenix! 

Coyotes vs. Canucks with FEI

For those of you that enjoy hockey, you’ll like this one. We had the pleasure of hosting a mixer with FEI at a Coyotes vs. Canucks game, and we had a great time! Not only did the Coyotes win 3-0 (*proceeds to howl*) but we had a great time networking with 20+ local financial executives and their families.

 

CBIZ Super Bowl Potluck

During the week leading up to the Super Bowl, trash-talking was at an all-time high between our staunch Patriots fans and, well, everyone else. We figured there was no better way to gear up for the Super Bowl than to have a Super Bowl foods-inspired potluck. Who are we kidding - we'll use any excuse to have a team get together.

Even if some of our team wasn’t happy with the ultimate outcome, we can ALL agree that the Super Bowl has the best foods ever.


Stay tuned for more updates from the Phoenix office!
