Year-End Round-Up: Our Michigan-Based Colleagues Share Event Highlights

20220726 185932 Hdr

This has been an eventful year at Perficient’s Michigan office and for the Culture Committee. With more colleagues returning to the office when pandemic restrictions were lifted, the culture committee team went into action mode to make sure we had events lined up for all to participate in. Whether it was the in-office and virtual Lunch & Learns or pancake breakfasts or the after-hours board games sessions or some new experiments outside the office like leasing a plot for gardening or the Life Remodeled project, the team did it all. And I can say, it was not just fun planning, but it was rewarding as well to see colleagues participating and enjoying these events.

Here are some highlights of the events:

We had a wide variety of Lunch & Learn sessions this year:  from cheese-making to cosplay to applying henna tattoos, and from bracelet-making to a session on American sign language, there was something for everyone. This has been a great series to learn something new or identify a new hobby.

Community Engagements: Donation drives, Kidney Walk ( at the Detroit Zoo), Life Remodeled project and more.

And on the right: The Holiday Donation drive drop off. The Michigan office teamed up with the Livonia Police department to provide gifts and much-needed items to seniors in low-income housing facilities.

 

Fun, in-office events: Board games, pancake breakfast, office cook-ins, the Tiger’s game (vs the Padres), cookie exchange, and Halloween contest to name a few.

We had a great time at the Fall picnic this year, bringing back the cornhole tournament. And rounding off this year’s events, was the wonderful Holiday Party with food and games at Dave & Busters!!

The culture committee is looking forward to hosting many more wonderful events in 2023!! So, stay tuned, and wish you all a very Happy New Year!
