MKTG ATL hosts 2nd Annual Discover YOU Day

Today marked the second annual Discover You Day in the MKTG Atlanta office.  This day is all about our employees and helping them find out more about themselves and each other.

The day started with a hearty breakfast and a town hall gathering to run down the agenda for the day and pass out goodie bags.  The bags contained a healthy snack, a fidget toy, a (literal) token of appreciation, a copy of First, Break All the Rules by Marcus Buckingham, and a pre-addressed thank you note to a fellow co-worker in the office.

Throughout the day, six impactful TED Talks were played on a loop in our large, theater-style conference room.  Talks ranged from Steve Jobs’ “How to Live Before You Die” to Brené Brown’s “The Power of Vulnerability”.  Teammates could pop in to catch these short talks throughout their day as their personal schedules allowed.

When employees weren’t watching TED Talks, they could also pop into another conference room to take a DISC personality assessment.  We hope each person could find out a little bit more about who they are, as well as their teammates, to find ways to tap into that knowledge and create value in their lives and in their work.

For lunch, we wanted to focus on some ways we can all make small changes in our eating habits, sleep schedules, and exercise regimen to do and feel our best. After tapping some of our resident health and wellness experts, we put together a fun lunch and learn called Facts, Snacks & Getting on Track.  The staff found placemats with quick tips and key advice for making some small improvements on the tables and a healthy, homemade taco bar to get them off on the right foot.

After lunch, MKTGers exchanged tokens of appreciation with “You Rock” on them to teammates they wanted to recognize for being, well, amazing. And in the spirit of appreciation, they also filled out the Thank You card they found in their bag at the beginning of the day and hand-delivered it to its recipient.

At the end of the day, employees were invited to share their thoughts on camera to capture what made the day so special to each individual.

We can’t wait until it’s time to do this all again next year!   For more photos of the event, check out our Instagram @MKTG_inc .
