As a reward for smashing our fourth quarter PPC targets, our friends at Google treated us to a team Paint Nite! It was a great opportunity for us to celebrate as a team while allowing us to meet our needs to get creative and get messy.
Google sent us everything we needed to create our masterpieces including canvases, aprons, brushes, and paints; the only thing they didn’t send was artistic ability because, as you can see, we already had plenty of it!
The contest was called Escape the Winter, and the challenge was to sign 5 new accounts and have them spend at least $30,000 between November and December, 2015 – and we did it! Nice work, team!
From November 1st to 2nd, a tenacious team from Strathcom Media challenged their endurance and participated in the annual Extra Life video game marathon in support of the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation. With the support of Strathcom employees and friends, they surpassed their goal and raised $3,265! As soon as office hours ended, the team of intrepid players threw on their comfiest sweat pants, set up their gaming rigs, and hunkered down with a flat of energy drinks. For over 24 hours they cruised the virtual streets of GTA San Andreas, battled epic dragons to save the people of Skyrim, raided dungeons in WoW’s Azeroth, built real-life slot car tracks in the office, and ran away in fear from the utterly terrifying Slender Man. We’re proud of our team and we’re excited to go even bigger next year! Check out the awesome time lapse of the marathon below:
Strathcom Media employees had a wonderful team building day last Wednesday August 28th to celebrate the end of summer & all our hard work this past year.
After we filled our hungry bellies with scrumptious mandarin vegetable salad, Mediterranean orzo salad, salty beef short ribs, sweet fruit salad & cookies, we were ready to begin our Minute To Win It team building challenge. The popular TV Show Minute To Win It is a game show where teams have to complete tasks in the quickest amount of time within a minute time frame. The team with the least amount of time wins free lunch for a week! With free lunches at stake, everyone was down to compete good and hard.
All in all we had a blast playing A Minute to Win It & enjoying our tasty food to celebrate all our hard work over the past year at Strathcom Media.
