It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of building company culture.
Showing your appreciation to each employee is critical. Countless studies show that positive employee engagement will impact a business’s success. Successful leaders can build a workplace culture that gives their company a competitive advantage.
So this past Chanukah, I decided to demonstrate my appreciation to the hardworking team at Ptex Group – but in a slightly different way than in previous years.
I quietly created a special Chanukah Goody Booklet for each employee that was mailed directly to their home. Inside the booklet were various gift options for our employees and their families to choose from.
To make all this happen, I had to take a little trip down to a place that most people dread: the post office.
We all know what a nightmare the post office can be. Long lines. Confusing signs. Gloomy decor. Apathetic workers. Even longer lines.
My experience this time was no different.
This article is being typed on a desk that’s surrounded by stacks of cardboard moving boxes, rolls of sticky packing tape and mounds of jumbled papers.
The wonderful moment has finally arrived: after so many years at our modest headquarters on 13th Avenue and 39th Street, Ptex Group is moving to a brand new office.
I cannot help but think about how much we’ve accomplished here over the past eight years.
We arrived at this location with only a handful of employees who were looking to make a difference in the world of business. Fast-forward to today, where over thirty full-time professionals work hard each day to create innovative marketing solutions that allow Ptex Group to shine.
Q: What’s better than spending the day with a talented group of people who are passionate about providing clients with the highest levels of professionalism, commitment and service?
A: Spending the evening with those talented people in a luxurious ballroom surrounded by delectable dishes, inspiring speeches and a feeling of camaraderie.
The official Ptex Group “Time Out Event” took place on Tuesday at the opulent Renaissance Ballroom in Boro Park as a way for the “Ptex Family” to take a well-deserved break from the busy workday… and enjoy each other’s company in the presence of a fine gourmet dinner.
