Blue Ribbon Transport has experienced tremendous growth over the last 12-18 months and with everyone working so efficiently serving our customers, we like to get creative to encourage mingling a little among departments during the work day.
To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, BRT’s engagement committee created an office wide scavenger hunt. Prior to the event, the engagement committee asked all employees to provide two interesting facts about him/herself. These facts would be the clues throughout the scavenger hunt. We received impressive, unique and hilarious clues like:
- I once rescued a baby black bear who was abandoned by it’s mother.
- I have won 5 state championships.
- I’m terrified of the movie, E.T.
- My grandparents were part of a mob in Chicago back in the 60’s.
- My school’s mascot was a Twig.
All employees, including the leadership team, were divided into 12 teams that consisted of individuals from various departments. First they had to agree to a team name (Fire Breathing Kittens (?)), then they had to work as a team to find the individuals who provided the clues.
The event kicked off at noon and we quickly learned how competitive our peers are.
The event was a lot of fun; got everyone out of their seats talking with their peers; and allowed all of us to appreciate each other!
