Another Team Outing: Romanian Team goes on a FL Adventure

As Spigot, Inc. grows – so do our teams and the frequency of our visitors from offices in our other locations (which means more team outings!) In the past year we have hired over 20 people and are looking to add another 50 employees this year. We often have company-wide happy hours and pop-up parties to celebrate wins or welcome new employees, but our individual teams have grown so much that they also have their own team outings and team celebrations.

Last week we had visitors from our Romanian office and we took them on an airboat ride at Corey Billie’s Airboat Tours in the everglades (a real Floridian Adventure). Everyone had a great time seeing all the alligators out in the everglades and doing 360’s on the boat! After the boat ride everyone got the opportunity to hold a baby alligator. 

Team outings and team building are a large part of Spigot, Inc.’s success. Employee happiness comes first, so Spigot, Inc. does everything to make sure we enjoy working together and coming to work everyday so fun team building activities are a must.

Nintendo Revealed More than 25 New Switch Games

Mario Kart and Super Smash bro’s have been extremely popular around the Spigot, Inc. office the past year – we even ordered a couple docks for the office to make it easy for us to bring in our consoles and play at our desks (or the giant conference room TV’s).  So it’s pretty exciting news that Nintendo just revealed that 25 more games and an update to Super Smash Bro’s will be coming this summer (looks like we’re going to be busy)!

According to the Business Insider “The Switch is Nintendo’s fastest-selling console in the last decade, with more than 30 million units shipped worldwide since its launch in March 2017. The growing userbase has inspired more third-party developers to bring their games to the portable device. Switch owners can look forward to a number of high profile games arriving from other consoles, from the classic “Final Fantasy VII” to critically acclaimed “Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice.”

Team Outing Alert: Everblades Game

Team building and team outings are an essential part to Spigot, Inc.’s success as a company, especially because we have several different locations. This week our Push Notification team, along with some of the members from our Romanian team got the opportunity to rent a suite at the Hertz Arena and attend an Everblades hockey game! The game was extremely exciting and we even got to see a fight! The suite was stocked with food and drinks AND the Everblades won! It was also one of the team member’s birthday, so they decorated the suite and we got a special visit from the Everblades mascot; Swampee the Alligator!

Ping-Pong is extremely popular around the Spigot, Inc. office – and last week we received a giant Amazon box with a brand new Joola professional caliber Ping-Pong table.

Happy Chinese New Year from Spigot, Inc.!

With Spigot, Inc.’s parent company Genimous being based out of China – the Chinese New Year is very significant to us! Last month a handful of Spigot, Inc. employees got the opportunity to travel to China and celebrate! While they were there (and everytime they go to China) they get to try out a variety of different foods. According to Chinesenewyear.net “Food is one of the things that the Chinese take the most pride in. And of course, lot of care and thought is put into the menu for the most important holiday of the year. As with Chinese New Year activities and decorations, the dishes are created to give blessings for the next year. Both the names and looks are symbols of wishes for prosperity, happiness and auspiciousness.”

Even though it wasn’t 100% authentic – Spigot, Inc. got the opportunity to eat Chinese food and hang out together today in honor of the new year!
