Quality of Life Matters at ABW Appliances
Imagine the cost of closing down your business for an entire day in your busiest season. Now add to that the price of food for 100+ guests and extra money for games and prizes. Every year on top of other programs like weight loss incentives, workout programs, and group outings focused on building bonds for both personal and professional support; ABW closes it’s doors for one day to allow all of our staff to eat, play and work on strengthening teamwork.
All of this is part of our philosophy Because Quality of Life Matters. At ABW we work hard, and it is important as an organization to promote balance to our staff. Our Annual Summer Games is just one of those events aimed at helping our teams achieve that goal. This event had humble beginnings. Beginning as backyard cookouts to badminton tournaments in the parking lot ABW Summer Games has grown into a full day of activities. We start our day with our annual, quarterly meeting and breakfast. Our first event is ABW’s Ninja Warrior obstacle race course ($100 cash prize to every winning team member). Lunch is hours filled with prize giveaways and great food (imagine: Dinner to Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, $75 Chipotle gift card, $500 cash and a free day off plus more). The kickball tournament closes the day and declares the reigning champs.
At the end of the day, everyone is tired but smiling-being able for a brief moment in time to not have to worry about deadlines or sales numbers, and that is what this event is all about. Everything works better if you unplug it, and allow it to reboot, especially people.
