Decron team members gathered at Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area on August 1st for a day of team building activities, feasting, and camaraderie. Like last year’s event, the picnic was a celebration of our incredible team and the values that make us oneDECRON.
The day started off with an enormous banquet buffet. For the main course, team members had their choice of hamburgers, chicken breast, portabella mushrooms and hot dogs, as well as homemade beef chorizo. There was also a hearty selection of sides, with a selection of salads (field green, cole slaw, potato, and Caesar), Mexican “Street Butter” corn on the cob, and a salsa bar with chips all on the menu. For dessert, team members enjoyed a selection of sorbet bar with toppings, gourmet Cinnabun cotton candy with homemade sugar, watermelon slices, grapes, and strawberries.
After lunch, the games began. With an assortment of rousing team building exercises like egg and water balloon relay races, Decron team members came together in a festive series of competitive activities. The highlight was the tug of war competition, which was split into two teams: Corporate vs. The World. This saw Decron’s corporate team paired against team members from all Decron’s field locations. It was a thrilling contest, with Corporate winning the first round, but The World ended up taking the lead, winning two out of three of the rounds.
In between the festivities, Decron President and CEO David J. Nagel thanked everyone for coming, and for their hard work this past year, highlighting how each individual and department is key to the company’s success, and speaking on the core values that make up oneDECRON: Integrity, Teamwork, Empathy, Pride, Accountability, and Continuous Improvement – all of which were on display throughout the day’s activities.
To cap off the day and show Decron’s appreciation for its team members, a raffle with prizes such as a Drone and Xbox One X was held. Once again, Decron would like to thank all of the individuals that attended and proudly display the core values that make us oneDecron!
