At the Beaulieu Group, Mardi Gras isn’t a single Tuesday — it’s everyday during Customer Service Week. And traditional Mardi Gras beads play an important part in the decorations, prizes, and a special week-long game called “Say it & Pay it.”
The game was created to focus attention on positive attitudes and positive word choices all while having fun.
Each team member started the week with a good supply of colorful Mardi Gras beads. At the end of the week the team members with the most beads received prizes.
But there was a catch: Any rep caught saying “can’t” or “won’t” during the week had to give a strand of beads to the person who caught the lapse.
And what’s Mardi Gras without a parade? The team also enjoyed a chair decorating contest and then paraded their creations — lead by the Mardi Gras King and Queen — around the building.
