Remember Halloween or harvest parties from your childhood? How you spent weeks agonizing over what would be The perfect costume? And how much fun it was to try to figure out who was behind that goofy looking mask?
We do! And many of us here at International Dairy Queen, Inc. (IDQ) haven’t yet grown up. In the past three or four years our corporate Halloween party has become something we all look forward to. In previous years our receptionist had embraced the fun and greeted guests in all kinds of fabulous costumes – and a smattering of other employees would don costumes for fun. Now most of the corporate team takes part in costume contests, cheering on the executivess in some kind of event, and enjoying a pizza lunch.
Some of the fun in past years included Duct Tape Man (I am sorry no photos of that costume survived!), Lady Luck, a 401k Portfolio, Mr. Bill … and, as you might imagine, food-themed costumes. Last year we had a contest where teams turned our executives into toilet paper mummies.
This year we’re looking forward to a pumpkin decorating contest, more costume contests, lunch, and an “Executive Fear Factor” event. What do you do at your office?
