No, our Hubs employee picnic this year was not in the South Pacific….but we did manage to find a few travel souvenirs and a little treasure along the way. Our team gathered on a beautiful Wednesday morning at the Airfield Conference Center in Wakefield, VA for games, contests, good food, and relaxation. The highlight this year was the scavenger hunt which yielded the result pictured here. Five teams organized themselves, spread out over 100 acres, and moved from clue to clue until one member of each group returned to the home base fully dressed in special island attire. What good sports we have working with us at Hubbard Peanut Company! Equally impressive were those who participated in the ‘minute to win it’ contests for their teams. When a co-worker steps up to try unusual and somewhat embarrassing activities on behalf of his or her team, a new level of respect is garnered.
Our main goal for the day is to have fun but hopefully we are also able to convey how integrally important each member of our team is. To win, it takes a lot of support and encouragement from everyone, as well as talent, drive, and enthusiasm. Sometimes, luck is involved, but planning is important, too.
From the moment an order is placed until Hubs are successfully delivered to your door, a member of our Hubs team has a key role to play. At the end of the day, when we have worked together, the result is more than just peanuts!
