Dodge Communications: Work Hard, Play Hard
“Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.” – Henry Ford, Ford Motor Company
Corporate culture is an important part of any organization's success. Here at Dodge Communications, it’s no different. We work very hard Monday through Friday serving clients in the healthcare, financial and life sciences spaces with services ranging from public relations strategy to messaging and marketing collateral, and so much more. In between our work, we manage to make time for just a little bit of fun—actually, a lot of fun!
Here are some of the fun activities our team has participated in the first quarter of the year:
Annual Whirleyball outing. Each year we close the office early to celebrate the success of the previous year. This year was no different during our annual Whirleyball outing. For those who aren’t quite sure what Whirleyball entails, think motorized bumper cars and the top of a lacrosse stick meets whiffle ball and a basketball hoop minus the hoop. Account management, members of the writing team, design team and the executive team battled it out on the court, and we had a great time. Already counting down the days until next year!
St. Patrick’s Day celebration. We look a little break from our communication activities and celebrated the luck of the Irish for the day. Our break room turned green for the afternoon, and we celebrated with leprechaun juice (aka green beer), silly green sunglasses, green sweets and fun team bonding.
March Madness bracket. A little friendly competition never hurt anyone! Whether you’re a basketball fan or not, we couldn’t resist participating in ESPN’s annual March Madness Tournament Challenge. Busted brackets and all, we had a great time cheering on our favorite collegiate basketball teams. Katelyn Lewis was the Dodge winner this year. Congratulations, Katelyn and UNC!
March Madness Dip contest. Keeping with the March Madness basketball theme, we also hosted a Sweet versus Savory Dip contest. Our colleagues brought in delicious array of dips for us to enjoy and then we voted on our favorite dip. The winning dip was Cheesy Corn Dip, prepared by Kaitlyn Hyde.
A big thank you to everyone at Dodge who participated in these events and congratulations to our competition winners. Looking forward to a fun-filled year!
