Annual Icon Blue Retrospective
Looking Back at the Year with Team Blue
Starting off the new year, we take a look back at some of the highlights from the past year. The best part of Icon Blue is the team that makes it, largely true of any company. Icon Blue, however, is a truly special team and we’d like to let you know a little more about the behind the scenes details that makes us who we are as a company.
Strategic Alliance with LAGRANT COMMUNICATIONS
Icon Blue teamed up with LAGRANT COMMUNICATIONS this year in order to better serve our clients. We’ve worked with LAGRANT for almost two decades and this is an extension of that relationship. LAGRANT offers the full-service marketing firm experience to complement Icon Blue’s focus on marketing with promotional products.
Best Places to Work 2016
Every year, Counselor lists the best places to work within the promotional products industry (in which there are over 24,000 different companies). The list is based on anonymous feedback submitted by the employees of each company, ensuring that the rankings are based on how the employees truly feel about their employers. In 2015, Icon Blue participated in the process for the first time and received 36th Best Place to Work within the industry. 2016 saw a tremendous leap forward and we took the #8 spot on the list, a feat we are tremendously proud of. What makes such a ranking possible are all the little things that contribute to making the team, from daily stretch breaks, to monthly birthday celebrations.
Volunteering at the Midnight Mission
Every year, Icon Blue makes an effort to reach out and participate in community service. We selected the Midnight Mission in 2016, leaving the comfort of the office for two days to assist the Mission’s work in providing lunch to the homeless in Downtown Los Angeles. The mission is able to serve lunches to over 400 people every day with the help of a coordinated team of volunteers and staff. This event was done as part of Team Honda’s Week of Service annual event.
As we look back at 2016, we look forward to new opportunities in 2017. We hope to repeat our successes and continue to play a part in helping our local community. Follow us on Facebook to see what Team Blue is up to throughout the year!
