You Know We Train. You Know We Tough. Bow Up.

The Memphis Kroc Center’s Challenge Center served as the perfect spot for our bi-annual office meeting.  To kick off the meeting, all of our employees met in the facility’s Grand Hall for a presentation from our Senior Managing Director, Eustis Corrigan, and other committee representatives. Our staff had the opportunity to welcome new employees, congratulate promoted individuals, discuss internal activities, and hear some motivating words.  Also, our Community Involvement had a special announcement.

After ending the meeting portion, it was time to solve some puzzles.  The energetic coaches from the Kroc Center had quite the experience planned.  We separated into eleven teams and focused on creating team names, chants, and an intro video.  Then, we joined together as one large group for some loud, boisterous fun to get everyone ready to go for the team challenge activities.

After shouting chants in the arena, we split into teams for the individual challenges.  We participated in various team building activities that strengthened our abilities to communicate effectively, actively listen, collaborate with diverse minds, and build trust among our peers.  We were able to utilize our critical thinking skills to solve puzzles, strategically maneuver objects, and resolve scenarios in hopes of becoming the winning team.

July's Office Meeting was a memorable experience that provided our staff a unique way to come together for office updates, community involvement, and team building activities.  We thank the Kroc Center staff for providing an energetic atmosphere for stepping out of our comfort zones.

Inspired by our friend, Carson Head, the
Memphis office committed the first half of 2015 to raising money for another wish child with a life-threatening medical condition through Make-A-Wish® Mid-South.

At our bi-annual office meeting at the Kroc Center, we granted our wish-child, Sheronda, her wish to go to Disney World. Employees dressed up in Disney character costumes and greeted Sheronda with Disney apparel. Sheronda was taken on a scavenger hunt, collecting clues that eventually led to the big reveal. She and her entire family will be flying to Orlando, FL soon to visit Walt Disney World.

In only five months time, our efforts allowed us to raise enough money to grant Sheronda’s wish. Some activities and internal office events made this goal possible:

Star Program: This program was a special way to recognize someone else in the office whether it was an intern, associate, manager, or managing director. All staff had a chance to buy a “Wish star” for another person’s good job that week in the office or out in the field.

March Madness Brackets: Interested employees participated in a firm-wide bracket during the March Madness games. For each entrant’s contribution to the pool, half of the money donated was put toward our Make-A-Wish funds.

Online Fundraising: Through an online fundraising site set-up for our office, employees, their families, and friends could donate directly to our cause.

Thank you to Make-A-Wish® Mid-South for allowing our office to participate in this wonderful program and congratulations to Wish Volunteer and our team leader, Sherry Hodgson, and the entire community involvement committee for inspiring our office and making this wish possible.
