Team night: Bowling!

For our Thursday team night, we gathered at Boardwalk Bowl for a few rounds of bowling. We love competition in and out of the field, so a little friendly competition never hurt anybody! Unfortunately, our bosses were out of town but the team managed to hold their own and lead the team night with ease. It’s always good to remind ourselves to work hard, but play even harder. Friends, family, food and fun we’re the themes of the night. To more team nights like these!

Here are some photos, but they really don’t do justice showing just how much fun we had!

Team night: promotion edition

Early Saturday morning, a few of us at the office discovered the good news: Shekinah Mouzon was promoted to assistant manager. In MCO Orlando, this is a big deal. When offered a position here, everyone starts at the same level. We valuing working our employees up to higher positions; therefore, promoting from within. Shekinah started at at the same position as everyone here. Through her hard work, determination, dedication, and passion, she managed to quickly be promoted multiple times. Now, Shekinah is close to opening up her own office. We are so proud of Shekinah and all the amazing things she has accomplished. We know she will continue to do spectacular things now and in her future!

Instead of having the typical team night, we decided to go big or go home! We surprised Shekinah at Castaway’s sports bar and grill with a bunch of food, decorations, cake, gifts, and most importantly, her mom. Her mom drove 3 hours just for her promotion, how sweet!

Here are so photos documenting our night! IMG_6622.JPGIMG_6621.JPG

Team night: Graffiti Junktion

Here at MCO Orlando, 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!
