At Advocate Capital, Inc., working remotely does not mean an end to our company-wide events. Before we began working from home in March of 2020, the local Advocate Capital team would meet each month for a planned event hosted by each department. We work hard, but we also understand how important it is to get together to keep our team close. However, we had to get creative to keep the fun going during the pandemic.
Our most recent event was a summer-themed trivia event done via zoom. We divided up into teams and let each team pick their name. We were well represented with the Red Hot Trivia Peppers, Wave Runners, Heat Waves, Sunburns, and even some Cow Tippers, to name a few. The questions were all about summer, and I think we learned a little history too. I know I was surprised by some of the answers.
Our competitive nature always kicks in when we meet as a group, but that makes it even more fun. The winning team was the Representatives, made up of Donna Jones, Todd Jackson, Michael Moore, Anna Little, and Billie Hardison. Kate Arminger also won for the best summer-themed virtual background.
To quote the great Henry Ford:
“Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is a success!”
Best wishes for a happy and safe summer from all of us at Advocate Capital, Inc.
