‘Tis the season to be… outrageous.
Inc. Features BlueGrace Logistics on their ‘World’s Coolest Offices: Holiday Spirit’ List.
About BlueGrace & the “BG Festivus” 2015 Event:
At BlueGrace nothing is off the table when it comes to providing the best employee experience, even a snow machine…inside. Yep, we did that.
Mastering the art of ‘Corporate Culture’ has been a slight obsession of ours since inception. It’s part of our company strategy, hiring practices, training, and even leadership initiatives. We know the secret to success in any company is not really a secret at all: the happier the team the more successful the business. We also believe that part of being successful is giving back and being part of something bigger than ourselves, which is why we incorporate an annual food & toy drive into our event for our local community charity of choice, Metropolitan Ministries.
The holidays are a favorite time of the year at BlueGrace Logistics, and we’ve been known to go full-blown Clark Griswold in the outrageous department. Our traditions tend to be unique and tailored to our family-like environment that we’ve created. This year our “BG Festivus” event had a “Christmas Morning Pajamas” and “Ugly Sweater” theme, a “Dirty Santa” gift exchange, a cookie bake-off & catered lunch for our employees. But we didn’t stop there, because that would be boring and we don’t do boring. “BG Festivus” came equipped with SIX Christmas Trees filled with toys for Metropolitan Ministries, spiked eggnog & holiday cider at 3:00 to ensure we made Santa’s Naughty List. We even had our very own Grinch to stir up some chaos, and of course an indoor snow machine. To capture this ridiculousness, we hired a photographer to take candids and department pictures in the snow. Did we mention that we’re hiring?
