Who doesn’t love summer? It’s a great time to enjoy the weather, relish in longer daylight hours, and reassess your yearly goals at the halfway mark. Summer 2018 at Coleman also brought an opportunity to have fun at work. Each Friday at 4PM, employees in our New York office got together for cocktails and conversation. Different teams were responsible for coming up with a “Friday Funday” theme and drink to go with it. The in-office happy hours were a great opportunity for teams to mingle and add a little summer sunshine to everyone’s day.
Meanwhile, the Raleigh office sponsored themed Fridays in July. Some of the themes included Funky Sock Day, Wear Your Coleman Red, Team Coordination Day, and Hawaiian Shorts Day. On the last Friday of the month, employees cooled off with traditional New York Ices from the Sweet Water Ice Shoppe. The Raleigh office also raffled off Durham Bull’s tickets. Fifteen different employees got the chance to see a baseball game and bring along a guest. Finally, Raleigh wrapped up the summer with a “Back to School” themed mixer where employees wore their college sweatshirts and reminisced about their school days.
A little further up north, the Boston office kicked off the summer by participating in a beach volleyball league on Tuesday nights. They also joined other members of the WeWork offices for a Boston Harbor Cruise. On the other side of the country, the San Francisco office celebrated the beautiful summer weather with a rooftop party, Giants game and nights of friendly competitions at local bowling alleys.
Recapturing the joy, energy, and excitement of summer vacation for our employees is just one more way we let them know their hard work is appreciated all year round. With the cooler weather right around the corner, we look forward to all the great events happening at our offices this fall!
