My, how time just zooms by. Yesterday we celebrated our FIFTH year’s end. In August 2014 Pacific Retina Care(sm) will be FIVE! Now that we have a larger staff, I try to find a new way to celebrate every year. A few years ago we gave each employee $100 to shop for themselves at Waikele Outlets. Last year we had a secret gift exchange and chili cook-off at the office. It was good fun watching everybody open their gifts and taste all of the chili entries. This year we celebrated at Clay Cafe at Ward Warehouse.
We allowed each employee to select an item or two to paint in the range of $50 and a delicious beverage. Although it took deep concentration not allowing for much conversation, painting together was much fun. We missed Gail, but some of the other employees plan to return to Clay Cafe to finish their pieces and she can join them.
Our staff did have to do homework beforehand. We have been discussing culture and what makes Pacific Retina different from the rest. As an entry ticket, I asked each employee to write an essay on what makes PRC different or what PRC means to him/her. I will be sharing these throughout the new year so please stay posted. In the meantime, we wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous 2014!
