As a company, we believe an important part of our culture is to create opportunities for our employees to not just thrive, but to also have some fun. So, even when we host serious all-employee meetings, they are coupled with light-hearted entertainment and fun activities. This quarter was no exception—a ’90s themed quarterly business review (QBR), followed by a Hawaiian-luau picnic.
One of the core values our employees appreciate is the transparency provided to the entire organization about company performance and what is currently most meaningful. Ways that we accomplish this is through a Weekly Results Review and quarterly business review where each department takes turns planning the updates, theme, food, and entertainment. It’s a great team bonding exercise, and we’ve had tons of creative ideas like: Game of Loans, Whodunnit Mystery Theme, and Oktoberfest.
After this quarter’s QBR, we hosted our company picnic. Every year leading up to the picnic, we run a contest to design a t-shirt for the picnic. Employees submit designs and the company votes for their favorite. The winner is unveiled the day before the picnic when the t-shirts are distributed. This year’s winner encouraged employees to “Stand Out from The Nest.”
At the picnic, employees sported the new company swag and indulged in the normal picnic fare of hamburgers, hotdogs, and the crowd-pleasing BBQ chicken prepared every year by one of our own colleagues.
The afternoon was spent competing in an array of different games from giant Jenga to marshmallow stacking. A company favorite is always our annual cornhole tournament. This year, we had an epic 43 teams sign up in hopes of winning the coveted title of Cornhole Champion.
Best Egg employees from every department look forward to our annual picnic and we love bringing the whole Best Egg family together. It’s a terrific annual event and is just one of the ways we get to socialize with coworkers and thank everyone for their hard work.
