Team night: Graffiti Junktion

Here at MCO Inc., we like to have as much fun as possible. After all, what’s all work with no play? We do that by not only having the liveliest work environment, but also by having weekly team nights outside of the job. Our first team night in 2018 was bingo at Graffiti Junktion. Gathering together, eating good food, and playing fun games: what more could we want?

Here are some pictures below, enjoy!

What Happens In Vegas…

Last week we took a trip to Vegas, without ever leaving Florida! Vegas was brought to us with a fun Casino themed night. We played a variety of games such as Poker, Roulette, and Blackjack. The competition was fierce as there was a prize on the line: lottery tickets! Friendly competition is a great way to bond and build team relationships, and what better way to do so than with some gambling.

“Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.”

Let us know in the comments what some of your favorite casino games are and how you like to build team relationships.

Rock and Brew

We need a little Rock and Roll in our lives sometimes. Last week for our amazing Team Night we went to Rock and Brew here in Orlando and had an amazing time together. It was the week birthday of two great employees of MCO INC they have been with us for such a long time so we decided to celebrate such a special moment with them and get a little special desert as an extra point. Friends and family are invited to join us every week, for our warming get together.

Here at MCO Inc., we strive for all our team members to work towards earning their own office through promotions. But of course, you need to work hard and dream big to be able to achieve that goal. If you have a mindset that you want to get someplace you need to start taking the first step today to achieve that goal in the future.

 

Let us know in the comments some ways you work on team building. We’re always looking for new and fun ways to bond with one another.

There is no better way to learn then having a special event for it, last Wednesday all of us got together at our manager’s house Ashley Allen for an extremely fun Luau party. We had a variety of Hawaiian, games such as the Limbo and a question of fun facts game and a special playlist of Hawaiian music. Plus got to learn a lot about the culture and also about AT&T in a different location. Everyone participated with a very enthusiastic attitude getting dressed up for the occasion and being very competitive with the special games.

Having fun like the old times!

Sometimes we need to go back in time and remember all of the old days when we used to have fun by playing games with our friends. After a long day at work there’s nothing better than enjoying a great time with your coworkers. Last week, some of the team members got together for a great time at Arcade City.  Friends and family are invited to join us every week, for our warming get together.

Operation Smiles ft Chipotle

On June 29, instead of hitting the field as usual, the team members first stopped by Chipotle to participate in our annual fundraiser. Operation Smile is a fundraising mission to help kids born with cleft lips or cleft palates in developing countries. Without the surgery, these children cannot consume food and their families often cannot afford the surgery. For as little as $240, Operation Smile gives them another chance.
