Every year at Thrive, we have what’s called Thrive Camp. Thrive Camp is a week-long get-together for all of us on the team at our headquarters in Arlington, TX. Since many of our team members telecommute from all over the US and the world, we have one week in October where we all hang out, visit local clients, and get to know each other beyond the webcam. It’s chock full of activities and fun, and every year, we leave wishing the next one wasn’t a whole year away!
This year’s Thrive Camp was no exception. We had team meals at/from several different area restaurants, we visited local clients, we flew through the air on a ropes course, we played volleyball on a giant pillow trampoline, we heard inspiring speeches, we volunteered at Mission Arlington, we played broom ball on ice (yes, in Texas!), and more. All of those things we did as a team, and we felt the connections between us growing stronger.
What’s the point of all this? Well, we believe that, if we appreciate and know each other better, our team will work better together as a whole. For our clients, that means great communication, kindness all around, and just general happiness to be a part of a great company, working with great clients.
