New initiatives, products, re-brands, or welcoming new employees- any type of growth or change is important to celebrate as a company! Launch events are not only a fun way to bring people together, but they are crucial in promoting and curating the image for your brand and company. Instead of throwing a run-of-the-mill happy hour or cocktail party, put some thought into your launch event and knock it out of the park with these three steps.
We welcome the new season of crisp breezes and colorful trees. Where leaves fall and the air is filled with pumpkin and spices alike. Every season has its special beauty and Autumn is no exception. We embraced this feeling by hosting our Annual Autumn Mixer on October 10th at the Downtown location on the rooftop. Celebrating 30 years of experience, AdvantEdge understands that the success of this company comes from our wonderful clients.
There are many types of work events, ranging from the downright rowdy to the glorified meeting. Either way, people get excited when you say “event”. They love having something different to look forward to during their workday. Whether it’s an update on business regulations or a happy hour, here is your guide to planning an event that will have everyone responding “yes!”
Couldn’t make it to our 2018 kickoff EdgeTalk? No worries! In this post we recap the three main takeaways from Dawn Shuler’s presentation: Turn Your Customers Into Raving Fans.

Not only is the holiday season the most wonderful time of the year to show your friends and family how much you love them through the process of gift giving, it’s also the perfect time to show your colleagues how much you appreciate working with them every day. While seeing a smile on the faces of your co-workers after giving them a thoughtful present is very rewarding, it can also easily become very expensive. However, gifting at your office doesn’t have to break the bank, and there are several inexpensive options out there. Here are a few ideas to consider when thinking about what to get your co-workers this season.
“Holiday season” at work typically means decorations in the lobby, office parties, too many holiday cookies and several gift baskets from clients and colleagues. But this season should be so much more than dealing with an overserved coworker at the holiday party or helping yourself to another gingerbread man that Mary from HR made.
Employee Appreciation Day may have been on March 3rd, but we like to color outside of the lines here at AdvantEdge and celebrate our associates when it feels right! It is not every day that a team decides to celebrate and commend one of its own without a push from upper management or the occurrence of a holiday, but the AdvantEdge crew recognizes a star when one is amongst us and we do not hesitate to show appreciation!
Viewing parties, good-natured competition among colleagues, and basketball mania galore highlight life at AdvantEdge Workspaces during March Madness. Like most of the nation, we have dove head first into the "Madness" of March Madness! Surprisingly, only 11% of employers support March Madness in the office, stating that it inhibits productivity. As we celebrate our sixth year of inter-office bracket challenges and social office events, our shared workspace begs to differ!
