For 10 years, employees at the St. Louis headquarters of the A.G. Edwards brokerage firm have put together an employee chorus to sing at the annual holiday luncheon and at a local nursing home.
The 35-member chorus practices two days a week each holiday season before giving a performance for 4,700 employees.
The company bought a piano, an organ and an electric piano for the group, and it pays for sound-equipment rentals each year.
The chorus is a holiday stress reliever, a networking tool for employees and creates loyalty to the company, says associate VP and public relations manager Debra Glover, who started the chorus.
“If you elicit their passion, it keeps people engaged and connected to the company,” she says.
