It’s been nearly two weeks since Plante Moran was named to FORTUNE magazine’s list of the “100 Best Companies to Work For,” and we’re still celebrating. As I was thinking about my next blog, I thought it might be nice to share a little of how we’re celebrating internally and, hopefully, learn from you how you celebrate accomplishments at your organization.
First, we’re holding a contest—What I Like About Plante Moran (also called WILAPM, given our love of acronyms around here)—that challenges staff to take photos depicting their favorite things about the firm and pen witty captions to accompany them. Once photos are in, we’ll narrow them down to our 10 favorites and then post them on Facebook, where you can vote for your favorite. The P&Mer who gets the most votes will win an iPad2, so be sure to check out Plante Moran’s Facebook page over the next few weeks so you can vote.
Speaking of our Facebook page, for every new “like” the page receives between now and February 10, Plante Moran will donate $2 (up to $10,000) to area Boys & Girls Clubs. We’re very excited about the FORTUNE designation, and we wanted to do something that would not only benefit us but also our communities. So far, we’ve received 1,117 new likes, which means a donation of $2,234 to area Boys & Girls Clubs. Optimally, we’d love to hit that $10,000 mark, so I hope those of you with Facebook pages will support this very worthy cause.
Now is that part of the blog where I turn it over to you. How do you celebrate accomplishments at your organization? Do you do anything fun/outside of the box that you’d like to share? I’d love to hear your ideas.
