To celebrate the end of a busy season, Plante Moran’s Kalamazoo office held a scavenger hunt. Staff could win points for virtually everything: pumping gas for a stranger, videotaping their group singing the “Friends” theme song, calling a management team member, or asking the very important question: “Is your refrigerator running?” (That one never gets old.)
But, only one double-dog-dare-you item was worth a whopping 1,000 points — “Do you bleed Plante Moran blue? Prove it. Get a Plante Moran tattoo.”
No way anyone would ever do that, right? Wrong.
You see, Assurance Staff Member Nick Presley likes to win. And, he likes Plante Moran. So, a few minutes after seeing that challenge, he found himself in a tattoo shop getting an official Plante Moran “Make the Mark” tattoo on his foot.
What did Nick and his team win for his sacrifice? A group of (very tiny) trophies.
Was it worth it? “Sure, why not?” says Nick. “I figure it’ll be a good story to tell and a fun reminder of the good time our team had that day.”
It’s definitely a great story to tell — and one we’re happy to share.
