The Weekly Surge

January 5th, 2016

Happy New Year Everyone!

The year 2016 is finally upon us. It's the first full work week of the year and we're all back to the daily grind. Well... most of us anyway. Hopefully you all had a wonderful holiday break. Did you do anything special or take a cool trip anywhere during your time off? Let us know! Better yet, send us pictures! We'd love to hear about your trip.

Also, due to the debacle with the Hubbell mail server last week, a lot of you did not receive The Weekly Surge in it's usual timely fashion. Or for most of you, not at all. Hopefully we have remedied that situation now. If by chance you know of a co-worker who received a quarantine email about this newsletter, then by all means show them how to white list it so they can receive The Weekly Surge again. Thanks!

Thanks again and here's to Happy, Healthy & Successful 2016!

Charity and Team-Building Events for 2016

Elgin's office is discussing the possibility of participating in a Habitat For Humanity Walk-A-Thon. Our Food For Greater Elgin food drive was such a success. The question was raised, "How often should we hold a charity or team-building event?" This poll is for everyone to help us come up with a solution.

Question #1 - How often would you like for the company to hold a charity or team-building event?
- 2 x per year

- 4 x per year

- 6 x per year
- Other amount and why?

Question #2 – In what kind of events would you like to be a participant?
Would you like a charity event such as a walk-a-thon or food drive, or perhaps a team-building event like enjoying a ballgame or having some fun bowling is more to your liking? All suggestions are welcome.

Please e-mail with your responses. Thanks!
