Every year at AgentLink we host an event to gather all our team members together for some casual fun. This year, for the first time, we expanded the event and had a huge picnic that included all our family members. We had 85 people join us on our President, Jude Thompson’s farm. As you can imagine, there was something fun for everyone.
Our families were able to get a taste of the farm life. We watched and interact with dogs, goats, and horses. Some people even threw a line into the pond to try to catch a fish. We put up a bouncy castle with a water slide for the kids. There were several rounds of basketball. Most of all, there was lots of eating!
Great Purpose for the Picnic
The food, of course, was a big focus for the picnic. We used Mark’s Feed Store for our main entrees and everyone contributed side dishes and desserts. So, we had quite a delicious spread. We’re glad we hosted this in the summer because the longer hours of sunshine seemed to lend itself to long chats with no one anxious to rush home.
The picnic was many things but we had one very important purpose for it. We know that being a strong team and a great workplace means more than just the day-to-day business transactions inside the office. This picnic is one of several ways we try to encourage team members to get to know each other better, and to demonstrate how we value them and their families.
We are thankful for our team. We want to say thank you to everyone who came to the picnic. We’ve posted more about our picnic on our social media. If you don’t already follow us there, we’d love for you to do that on our Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter.
P.S. Check out our CEO Matt and his daughter watching one of the horses at the picnic. Isn’t that a sweet picture?!
