Icon Blue Celebrates Team Building Day!
Friday, July 11th, at our office on Wilshire Blvd in sunny Los Angeles, the employees at Icon Blue celebrated its annual Team Building day. While similar types of events have taken place over the years, this was the first time the team came together to engage in a Jeopardy-themed game, complimented by a deliciously catered lunch under the banner of “team building.”
The day was a huge success and it managed to bring all the employees together for a fun afternoon that still managed to be productive and relevant to the work we do on a daily basis. Our VP and COO Eden McClellan, SPHR headed up the day by bringing in catering and creating a Jeopardy game with questions about the work we do. It was a fun opportunity to brush up on industry terminology, get a little competitive, and come together in a more casual setting than a regular business day. Newer employees got to bond with the office veterans over the festivities and everyone learned a little bit more about the wonderful people that comprise Team Blue. We certainly looked like a team in our Icon Blue shirts, and by the end of the day we felt even more like one.
The prizes for the Jeopardy game included Icon Blue branded gift cards and everyone received a fantastic piece of drinkware for both hot and cold beverages—complete with Icon Blue’s own logo (thank you Eden!).
The wonderful thing about promotional products is that they are always welcome! Even though we see them in the office every day, we were thrilled to receive our very own Icon Blue bottles. Likewise, it was a simple and effective way to let everyone in the office know that his or her work was appreciated and valued. Since the event, I’ve spotted bottles on a few desks at work—proof that a good promotional product is one that gets used and valued!
What does this mean for your business? Corporate gifts, whether for new and existing clients or your own employees are a physical and concrete way to reinforce the message you want to convey. Human Resources departments can use promotional products in order to reward employees for taking on new clients or celebrate their anniversary with the company. Prospective clients can walk away from your first meeting with an item that already shows the value of your services.
So give Team Blue a call at 888.314.2581 and see what Icon Blue can do for your brand. We dream up many great promotional product ideas every day and remember that if we don’t have what you are looking for, we’ll find it for you—at no charge!
