Our Minneapolis team gathered to celebrate project successes and recognize outstanding colleagues at our annual holiday party held at Can Can Wonderland, also known as the Creative Enterprise Zone. The name of the venue stems from the historic building’s previous use as the largest tin can factory in the country. The venue offers an 18-hole mini golf course with each hole designed by a different local artist as well as a variety of arcade games, some dating back to the 1920s.
“The industrial chic vibe of the venue, as well as an equally eclectic drink selection made the holiday party stand out, as compared to other venues in the previous years,” said Brian Madison, lead technical consultant. “The retro arcades and a variety of pinballs, contributed to the fun factor of the holiday party.”
The holiday party began with a cocktail hour and taco bar, where colleagues got the chance to catch up on life outside of project work and meet recently hired colleagues and their guests. Our General Manager Art Quinn welcomed everybody with a quick update on office happenings before kicking off the awards ceremony. Awards to outstanding colleagues were given based on Perficient’s core values: Integrity, Innovation, People, Pride, Clients, and Collaboration.
The awards showcased the commitments these individuals have made in 2018 to our team and clients alike. These colleagues demonstrated Perficient’s mission and vision with their everyday actions and set an example of what thoughtful and supportive leadership looks like. In addition, several other colleagues were recognized for contributing to the office spirit in unique ways such as “longest consecutive run at a client” or “most likely to give the whole office diabetes from their snacks.”
Perficient Minneapolis generously invests in the growth of colleagues through training and career opportunities. Events such as the annual holiday party are a way of thanking colleagues for going the extra mile in everything they do.
