At Nufarm Americas, the celebration included a host of activities which provided opportunities to recognize coworkers, get to know teammates, and involve families.
The service team also wanted to reach out to the community, so they ended the week with an ice cream social and canned food drive. Several weeks later, volunteers from the service team continued their good work by helping package meals to be distributed to local families.
To involve their own families, the team hosted a poster contest. Drawing on the Customer Service Week theme, Be the OneTM, team members asked their children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews to illustrate one of the following themes.
- Be the one to make a difference
- Be the one to share a smile
- Be the one to show you care
- Be the one to spread joy
- Be the one to offer help
Prizes were awarded in two age categories: 5-7 and 8-12. The contest sparked a lot of creativity, started conversations about what mom and dad are doing all day, and provided festive decorations for the service department.
“We had so much fun creating the event and watching everyone participate in the festivities,” Pauline Gladkowski tells us. “The best part of the celebration was when one of the employees asked, ‘So what are we doing next week?’”
Pauline says that she’s already planning for next year’s celebration.
