On Tuesday, October 9, 2018, Team Blackman celebrated the hardworking employees at our corporate office in Bayport, NY. Colleen Capone, Director of Human Resource, organized an Octoberfest themed luncheon complete with raffle prizes and games for all employees. “The luncheon was organized as a way to thank our employees for their dedication to our organization and their roles. I look forward to working with my team to plan another employee event soon!” shared Capone.
In addition to an Octoberfest themed lunch, raffle tickets were given and employees were encouraged to enter for a chance to win one of many exciting prizes. Prizes included gift cards to Panera, TGIF Friday’s, Regal Cinemas, Sephora, as well as a portable speaker, a magic bullet, lottery tree, Broadway tickets, and New York Ranger tickets! It was wonderful for Blackman employees to be rewarded for their hard work and dedication to the organization.
“This event was a great opportunity to bring everyone in Bayport together, from both the corporate office and the distribution center. Often times, different teams within our organization get caught up in the workday with varying responsibilities. By taking a couple of hours to relax and spend time with one another, employees had the opportunity to catch up, share experiences and enjoy a nice meal together.” shared Blackman Vice President of Retail, David Lyon.
