OptConnect Summer Bash: Celebrating Our Employees

At the heart of the OptConnect culture are three core values: Communication, Integrity and Accountability. These values remain at our core because of the dedicated employees who uphold them. Because our employees are so invaluable, we like to celebrate them with team lunches, offsites, and most importantly, company parties.

Company parties are a fantastic occasion to have throughout the year. On the employee level, the employee feels the value and appreciation. Not only are the employees included in the celebrations, but their families are included as well. Families are the support system when employees leave the office and we think they deserve recognition also.

On the employer level, we are able to give back to our workers.  There is no greater feeling than giving and making someone feel appreciated.  These types of events are important because it allows coworkers, managers, and employees of all sorts to socialize in a non-work environment.

Here at OptConnect we host two annual parties: the summer party and the winter party.  We love to give back to our loyal, hard-working talent by giving them something to look forward to in the middle and end of the year.  This year we held our Summer Bash at a local “fun zone,” called Boondocks.

This year in particular Chris Baird, President of OptConnect, made a very inspirational connection between our employee gift and how we are planning for the future.  Our gift to our employees was a rocking camping chair. At a glance it seems that this camping chair was just an ordinary folding chair, however it is the first structural change to camping chairs since the 1800’s.  

As the head of Human Resources for OptConnect, I believe that it’s important to gather our employees and celebrate our successes along the way. Parties are a great way for us to bring everyone together and have fun, I was very satisfied with the turnout we had for our Summer Bash this year.

More than three-fourths of our employees and their families were able to attend.  We started out with dinner and announcements for the first forty-five minutes, then everyone was able to mingle and play as much as they liked.

OptConnect has a fantastic culture and atmosphere wherever we go. The management team does a fantastic job at encouraging positive energy throughout the company.  

Without help from them, my job wouldn’t be nearly as fun.
