At Decron, community is the pillar of our company culture. Though COVID-19 may have changed how we interact with one another as a society, it’s more important than ever that we proudly stand as oneDECRON. To exemplify this, it was paramount for us to find a safe, socially distanced way to celebrate our annual employee appreciation summer picnic in 2020.
In past years, such as 2018 and 2019, Decron’s summer picnics have seen team members from the entire organization gather for a day of team building exercises, feasting, and special recognition for exemplary employee performance. Since it wasn’t feasible to gather in a large group like past years, we hosted a series of small events for employees at individual properties between August 19th and August 28th.
Micro-events at different locations were led by our incredible community managers and included picnic lunches, specially designed Decron swag bags with a variety of goodies, and no-contact games like pictionary in outdoor park locations, or sufficiently spacious designated interior areas. Due to reduced staffing, we hosted a series of grab-and-go lunch events at our corporate office over the course of a couple days.
In these trying times, we are incredibly grateful to have such a positive, hard-working team, with members whom demonstrate our core values on a daily basis. These values are:
- Do the Right Thing: Integrity
- Everyone Together: Teamwork
- Care for Our Customer: Empathy
- Respect Our Work: Pride
- Own It: Accountability
- Never Stop Growing: Continuous Improvement
We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the Decron family across all our properties for their hard work during the COVID-19 pandemic, and hope to celebrate once again with everyone next year at the 2021 Summer Employee Picnic!
