Online retailer of baby shower party supplies rewards staff on performance, outstanding customer service
[USPRwire, Mon May 31 2010] Buoyed by record sales last month, SimplyBabyStuff.com, the web’s leading retailer of baby shower favors and gifts, along with its parent company BigDotOfHappiness.com, celebrated the achievement with their latest Big Dot Awards Day. As a reward for their continued hard work and success, the company’s entire team of employees was treated to a work-day field trip to the mall, along with gift cards to spend.
“Team building is a big part of the Big Dot philosophy,” says Sherri Yukel, founder, BigDotOfHappiness.com. “We like to play hard and work hard. It is very important to the Big Dot Team to celebrate our accomplishments and keep reaching for new goals.”
Once at the mall, Big Dot staff were given express instructions to shop for themselves during this hour, an act of generosity not lost on the employees, many of whom are parents and normally reluctant to splurge on themselves.
“Where else can you get home from work and tell your family that you spent the afternoon shopping for yourself’ while on company time, let alone having the owners give you a gift card to spend on yourself?" wondered an appreciative BigDotOfHappiness.com party planning expert.
To cap off the day’s festivities, Big Dot employees participated in a life-sized “body art” team photo: some 40-plus employees arranged themselves across the company’s lawn to spell out the words “Big Dot” while a photographer captured the scene from atop the roof of Big Dot’s headquarters.
The Big Dot Awards Day was the latest expression of the company’s uncommon approach to business, which emphasizes exceptional customer service and promotes a family-like camraderie among its staff, its “expert experts” or “fanatics” as Yukel affectionately calls them.
BigDotOfHappiness.com plans to continue the outings and award days in the spirit of fun and encouraging its staff to meet sales goals. Last year the online retailer rewarded its employees with a charter bus trip to Action City, a Wisconsin amusement park for a day of rock climbing, go-karts, mini golf and arcade games.
