Spigot, Inc. employees are extremely lucky – because not only do we have a fun environment, but we get the opportunity to travel the globe for team-building events! Our parent company is located in China, and we also have an office in Bucharest, Romania –  and last week two of the Spigot, Inc. teams got to spend a few days there, experience the culture and hang out with the Romanian team.

Another Successful Spigot, Inc. Holiday Party!

Spigot, Inc. had an eventful day/evening on Friday night! Work slowly wound down at around 2:30 in the afternoon and everyone played games in the break-room and headed out early to get ready for the night’s festivities. Spigot rented out the top half of Society Fort Myers in Bell Tower Shops and had a variety of appetizers and cocktails to go around. Everyone mingled and met each other’s significant others until about midnight and then we moved downstairs to the VIP area and closed down the venue (Yes, they had to make us leave).

There are so many perks to working at Spigot, Inc., but the abundance of opportunities we have (and want to have) to hang out with each other outside of work is definitely at the top of the list.
