Employees and managers teamed up to trick out their work spaces for Halloween, transforming the cubicle jungle in to a fantasyland of black-and-orange decorations, costumes and bowls of candy. Popular themes for decorations were Candy Land, Magnum P.I., Harry Potter’s Hogwarts and an interactive game of Clue.
Dubbed “Boonited,” the firm’s annual, weeklong Octoberfest featured:
- Desk decorating. Employees voted for winners of awards for most creative and “viewer’s choice.”
- Trick-or-treating. The organization invited the children of its more than 400 United Shore employees over to collect candy from stations posted throughout the company’s headquarters building. On their final stop, the costumed kids were treated to apple cider, doughnuts and a movie: Disney’s “Monsters University.”
- A costume contest. The weeklong festivities ended on Halloween, when employees wore costumes to work and vied for prizes for scariest, most creative and best group getups.
President and CEO Mat Ishbia’s take on the scene: “We have a culture that is very unique.”
